Guess what? We’ve been working on a new ASBX audio project for the last few months!
And, guess what? We’re gonna be talking about it via a livestream at the Clayton Center on Tuesday, September 29 from 7:00-8:00pm.
Aurelia Belfield, Lakeisha Coffey, Thaddaeus Edwards and I will be representing our newest project in the works: The Declaration of Love.
[Note: Thirty artists have contributed to the DOL project. Yep, THIRTY people made this! However for this event, we chose to limit the number of people gathering in person. As you’ll see below, we’re still able to ‘bring’ additional actors along by pre-recording some of the pieces. Big thanks to ALL of the contributors to this project. Friends, all of these episodes are going to knock your socks off this fall!]
Curious about the Declaration of Love project….?
Love in space, at the seashore, in the backyard.
Love in the future, one hundred years ago, and right this very moment.
Love between family, friends, and lovers.
Broken love, silly love, healing love.
It’s all in here.
The Declaration of Love Project: Eleven original audio pieces written by NC playwrights
Co-producers Aurelia Belfield and Tamara Kissane commissioned eleven NC playwrights to craft short audio scenes based on the prompt “Declaration of Love.”
Though the resulting original pieces span the gamut in style, setting, and content, they all spark our emotions and unleash our imagination through story and sound.
Recorded remotely by local actors, the finished scenes will be lightly sound designed, and released to the public in podcast form later this year.
Here’s the event link (again!)
If you are available, we’d love for you to tune in on Tuesday and give the project an audience boost.
We’ll be talking generally about DOL, how it came together and why we think projects like this one are valuable. And, we’ll be showing 6 of the 11 pieces in various forms (mostly unfinished cuz we don’t want to give it all away before the release!).
Featured actors for this event: Aurelia Belfield, Lakeisha Coffey, Thaddaeus Edwards, Sai Graham, Trevor Johnson, Kyma Lassiter, Yolanda Rabun, AhDream Smith.
Featured playwrights for this event: Aurelia Belfield, Lakeisha Coffey, Thaddaeus Edwards, Michael Ivory, Jr, Tamara Kissane, Robin Carmon Marshall.
More details about Declaration of Love to come. For now, share the link, mark your calendars, and get your popcorn ready. (Actually, a quieter snack would be better. )
