NW NEW WORKS WEEK 2 Jun 16, 2014

STUDIO

Helena Theatre Company

I was very excited to see Helena Theatre Company on the bill, precisely because they are from Helena. One of the great things about NWNW is that we get to see performers from so many different areas.

The show didn't disappoint. The conversation about funding, and the effect that has on the art, is an important one. It was presented here in a thoughtful, and fun, way.

NW New Works Festival – June 13-15 Jun 16, 2014

Deserving Art by Helena Theatre Company – During the piece I kept trying to pull myself back and not to be distracted by my own thoughts. “Funding is the beginning of magic” – I pondered on this phrase….. “or something else?” I thought of the image of empty audience seats in the opening night of independent-produced shows.

The inevitable metamorphosis into his day-glo doppelgänger of a nasty/sweet surprise will make you piss yourself. I hero worship.
