Swing Space presents Workshop Performances of Gay Rodeo By-Laws (GRBL) by Monk Parrots and Director Luke Leonard
Since January, Swing Space Artist-in-Residence, Director Luke Leonard has been working in The Vaults at 14 Wall Street developing Gay Rodeo By-Laws (GRBL), a new performance event with his theater group, Monk Parrots. Utilizing the vast square footage of the Lower Vault to explore distance as a major theme, GRBL is a performance bordering on site-specific installation.
Loosely inspired by the poetic-documentary style of James Agee's book, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, GRBL examines 'citizens' and follows a family of three rejects while spurring questions about Western heritage and social perception.
The stage design requires a long hallway effect. Scenic drops hang at intervals down the length of the stage. During the performance, scenery drops to show another new performance space and as the piece unfolds, each layer will allow for an accumulation of potent symbols and visual fields evoking a journey through the 'world' of GRBL.
