7 Stages Announces 2018-19 Season

By Kacie Willis, 7Stages Director of Marketing
7 Stages celebrates their 40th season of fiercely weird and socially engaging theatre with classical repertoire, multidisciplinary works and three world premieres. The season opened on September 27 with Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, running through October 14. The season also will include the following works.
The Way at Midnight by Mondo Bizarro, November 1-4. Direct from New Orleans, Mondo Bizarro is a company that has been creating daring interdisciplinary art and fostering creating partnerships in local, national, and international communities for the last 14 years. The Way at Midnight explores confrontations with losing and being lost from the colonial period through the digital age and incorporates theatrical performance, visual installation, and live and recorded music.
Curious Holiday Encounters, December. 6-9. The popular festival of interactive performances will once again take place throughout the entire building with a twist of holiday cheer… and delightful madness! Come celebrate this magical time of year as only 7 Stages can, featuring, Little Five Points Rockstar Orchestra, Aris Theatre, The Weird Sisters Theatre Project, Rebekah Suellau, and more!
Warped-(world premiere) by Paper Doll Militia, February 21-24. Paper Doll Militia brings movement artists from Ireland and Los Angeles to dazzle and mystify in Warped, a theatrical aerial-dance spectacle. Join four quirky characters as they traverse a world of suspended gears, cranks, levers, and ropes that turn like the inner mechanisms of a giant clock. Visually rich, sometimes eerie, and always existentially engaging, Warped asks: Which choices determine what reality we land in?
Angry Fags (world premiere) by Atlanta playwright Topher Payne, March 28-April 14. Updated for the Trump era, Angry Fags is an uncompromising Oscar Wilde-meets-Fight Club fantasia about how good ideas go bad, the destructiveness of toxic masculinity, and how no one is really afraid of gay guys. The success of the 2013 original prompted a renewed interest in a sociopolitical world that seemed wildly absurd at the time but may now be closer to reality than we could have ever imagined.
Human: A Citizen’s Encounter (world premiere) curated and directed by Heidi S. Howard, May 18. Human features storytellers (homeless, refugee, politician, and scientists) who are working with professional artists to tell documentary theatre-style performances that share stories of family, ritual, and courage from all corners of our vibrant city.
The 40th season officially kicks off with the 2018 Youth Creates summer intensive, now in its 16th year! Other ongoing seasonal programming includes in-school residencies in support of Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine thanks to the NEA Big Read program, Art of Activism brunch conversations, and the Home Brew series featuring works in progress presented at local breweries. Titles and dates are subject to change.
Since 1979, 7 Stages Theatre has been bringing local and international emerging artwork of social, political, and spiritual importance to Atlanta audiences. Artists in performance, music, visual, and the spoken arts have found the organization a haven in the support and development of new works and methods of collaboration.
