ACCORD(ing) Graphic - Burning CoalACCORD(ing) is a sensorially immersive world of installations, soundscapes, physical theatre, and language, exploring how the human mind gathers, processes, and decides truths. Through visual poetry, drama and humor, issues of certainty, ideology, confusion, judgment, conflict and possibility are illuminated.

 ABOUT THE PLAY

Int’l award-winning director, Bronwen Carson, and Sargent Shriver Peaceworker Fellow and Insight Art maker, Vieve Radha Price, spearhead the world-premiere production of ACCORD(ing) for Burning Coal Theater’s Second Stage Series in June 2020.  

Carson and Price’s non-profit theatre companies, SoundingLine Arts and TÉA Creative have joined forces to create a sensorially immersive world of performance art, installations, movement, and language illuminating issues of certainty, ideology, judgment, conflict and possibility. ACCORD(ing) is an amalgam of visual poetry, physical theater, and soundscapes, utilizing both humor and drama to examine how the human mind gathers, processes and decides truths. 

The production will be entirely comprised of Triangle area performers and creatives trained in Insight Artistry, an exploratory art making method that focuses upon how we come to know, how we value, and how we ultimately make decisions. Movement is an integral component of the exploration as are various forms of immersive theatre and experiential art.  

Audience members will be allowed to roam freely throughout the theater space, experiencing various moments, scenarios, interactions, installations and vignettes in which individuals are striving for connection, understanding or choosing courses of action; sometimes they are heroic, other times they’re unable to free themselves from the constraints of habitual patterns or the constricted looping of their thoughts.
