The Oregon Militia Trail

faith shift is a work in progress triggered by doubt and an estranged relationship with religion. faith shift searches for clarity, resolution, and meaning through movement, text, and song for those of us who have ever felt particularly uncomfortable talking about religion in public at any point in our respective spiritual journeys. faith shift brings into question the role of spiritual identity, tradition, and ritual.




Solow Scraps

by Erin Carney and Monica Wiles

Erin and Monica are performing individual solo shows for the Solow Festival on June 17th, 18th, and 19th consecutively in a South Philly row home. They decided to combine elements from each of their shows for this one performance at Scratch Night. This is an experimental prompt.

Dracoola is put on by professionals. If there are any local awards that are currently up for consideration then the cast of Dracoola would like to be considered. It’s a show put on by idiots, I mean, professionals. They’re very, very professionalism.

Trapped in the abominable TeamWorkShop with no tools but their minds, three coworkers will escape only by ridding the office of an (imaginary?) infestation. Are they emotionally equipped to handle the situation? Or will they fall prey to the infernal machinations of this mellifluous influence? An intimate theatrical performance about obsession with the tiny, inconsequential, and useless.
