25CPW Gallery hosted Blueprint Theater Project's production, Allegro, part three of The Human Variations in January 2012.
The Human Variations is a four-part dramatic symphony that explores moments when human beings are right next to each other and still deeply alone. Executed using an original theatrical convention,"theality," which juxtaposes expressive movement with hyper-realistic, docu-theater techniques, each part of the serial explores these moments in a site-specific setting.
Allegro took place at the opening of an exclusive art exhibit and scrutinizes the superficiality of public interaction. The cast included Kyla Deichl, Molly Groome, Nick Hepsoe, Sarah King, Jillian Mason, Liana Rowe and Zac Walker.
The production team included Ellen Orenstein (Director), David Alex Andrejko (Playwright), Anna DeMers (Choreography), Chip Rodgers (Sound), Nick Lanza (Assistant Director & Sound) and Blueprint Theater Project Co-Founders/Artistic Directors: Kevin Connell and Ellen Orenstein.
