External Event: BEHIND THE BULLSEYE

Hi All,

A friend of mine is performing in a play and I thought it might be interesting to the group. While I do not advertise random events the plays by her group are often on contemporary topics or issues which we cover in our discussions. I will probably be going on Wed, July 1st; if anyone is interested, email me.

In today's world much energy is wasted in the creation and distribution of stuff. An unrelated video which lays down the general idea shot to great fame an even appeared in the New York Times. We discussed the topic peripherally in "Stuffed and Starved", about shopping habits of consumers and strategies taken by supermarkets to lure them in. This play focuses on a real local market:

BEHIND THE BULL'S-EYE

July 1-11, 2009, 8pm show

The Ontological Theater at St. Mark's Church

Tickets can be bought here.

On the heels of their successful 2009 tour of Belgium and The Netherlands for W.M.D. (just the low points), Brooklyn-based theatre company Sponsored By Nobody return to their native New York City with the world premiere of Behind The Bulls-eye -- a fusion of journalism, film, music and installation art that examines the shopping habits of Brooklyn residents from diverse ethnic and class backgrounds.

The Target store at Atlantic Terminal Mall in Brooklyn is chosen as a focal point to explore what lies beneath our collective shopping experience. The process of how we are able to buy what we want when we want is deconstructed from origin points in foreign lands -- to distribution networks and aisle by aisle arrangement decisions -- to the final moment of purchase by the consumer. The original text is based upon interviews with Brooklyn residents, actual product packaging and labels, and corporate advertising materials. Live cameras and pre-recorded film segments are employed within a functional "installation art" setting created by Kevin Doyle, Brendan Regimbal and Garret Savage [the design team on W.M.D.]. The international ensemble combines SBN members Sarah Stephens (W.M.D.) and Mike Carlsen* (The Position) with Sauda Jackson (International WOW Company), Keith Jamal Downing* (Classical Theatre of Harlem), and newcomers Mayra Castro (Chile) and Natalie Kim (South Korea).
