Inter•Section•Solo is a new festival of solo performance in Prescott hosted by The Carpetbag Brigade. This two-day event at Sam Hill Warehouse March 29th and 30th celebrates the art of intimate storytelling with theater, dance and spoken word. Inter•Section•Solo engages performance artists and poets to share well crafted stories from across the spectrum of human experience that invigoratingly question our traditions and identity.
Inter•Section•Solo is an opportunity to live inside the odd questions and memories that resonate through time in the territorial outpost of Sam Hill Warehouse. How did Johnny Appleseed sell cider mash? What was it like to dance inside the circled wagons on the Oregon trail? Was Eve upset about being made from a rib? Where is the wall along the Mason – Dixon line? Are today’s pioneers dancing in a club? or herding sheep in the desert? Or both? What’s the difference between migrations north/south and east/west?
Inter•Section•Solo creates a space to listen deeply to the stories that have shaped our culture. Listening deeply means much more than forcing oneself to politely pay attention to a friend or lover’s story so they keep on talking. At Inter•Section•Solo the burden of concentration usually bestowed upon a listener is joyfully lifted by a time bending performer who can skillfully seize the responsibility of sharing testimonial acts to provide poetic insight and comic relief into the suffering and grace of genetics and culture on our personal history/herstory. At Inter•Section•Solo your mind will be sparked with a flood of sensations that awaken and reveal our cultural imprints and ancestral memories.
