<i>Once Upon A Bride…</i> First Rehearsals

(Post and photo by August Schulenburg. Pictured: Rachael Hip-Flores, Chinaza Uche, Isaiah Tanenbaum, Becky Byers, Sol Crespo.) Well, first off, I suppose I should come clean right off the bat: I love Once Upon A Bride There Was A Forest. I’m a fan of all of Kristen Palmer’s work (and of Kristen), but I’ll admit, I…

After the transformative experience of Understand Our Ground, we’re back to our more traditional Food:Soul format, sharing an extreme staged reading of a play we’re passionate about. And oh, are we passionate…

Understand Our Ground Photos

(Photos by Isaiah Tanenbaum. Post by August Schulenburg.) What a night. From the Creative Partners of Flux and all of us on the Food:Soul committee, thank you to everyone who made Understand Our Ground possible. Over 110 people showed up for food, poetry, plays, dance and dialogue on some very difficult themes. This project was a…

Food:Soul of Goldsboro

(All photos by Ned Thorne. Pictured: Shaun B. Fauntleroy, Rachael Hip-Flores, Ken Glickfeld, August Schulenburg, Pete Boisvert). So…better late than never, right? (Right?) And it kind of makes sense that out of all of our Food:Souls, this would be the one to go missing. After all, this Food:Soul report had to fight its way through…

(If you know to whom the image above should be attributed, please email the information to Gus.) Food:Soul is Flux’s potluck play reading series, where we combine the community-building of sharing a meal with an extreme-staged reading of a play we’re passionate about. On Wednesday, November 6, Food:Soul–Understand Our Ground, will be held at Judson…

If I Did This Pictures, The Spielmann Chronicles

If I Did This Pictures, The Spielmann Chronicles

(Photo by Alisha Spielmann.) Was If I Did This the most photo-documented Flux Sunday ever? Quite possibly, true believers, with Ken Glickfeld’s awesome shots here, and Alisha Spielmann’s gorgeous work following. Perhaps all this documentation is appropriate for a show in which all the documentation in the world wasn’t enough to convict Donnie Larence (that…

Director Pete Boisvert took our extreme staged reading tradition and ran with it, using props,…
