"Acting Out: Words that Connect" directed by Mara Mills

Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art 1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY, USA

The following one-act plays will be performed:
Coni Koepfinger's "Turbulance" aka “Ups and Downs” and Bob Zaslow's "Flights of Fancy Schmancy" Both plays are directed by Mara Mills

Coni Koepfinger's "Turbulance" aka "Ups and Downs"
This is the story of an emotional, bipolar artist who is stuck on a metaphoric elevator that never allows her to access the placid reality of linear time. Sophia, surrounded by her work, speaks to a metal sculpture as if it were her unresponsive spouse and her equally unresponsive therapist. Through her, we explore the emotional ups and downs that artists go through when they feel they are not being heard - or seen. The play, inspired by Thomas Zipp’s work, which juxtaposes a figurative sculpture with a painting of rigid lines and repeated patterns defines how Sophie sees the world…as a constrictively designed structure she must somehow, someway fit herself into or escape from.
Through her own art, she is able make a slight alteration and she starts to see new patterns that somehow allow her to loosely fit into the world around her and to create. The play takes on the subject of the relationship between the creation of art and the artist - sanity and creativity.

Bob Zaslow's "Flights of Fancy Schmancy"
"Flights of Fancy Schmancy" is a send up of performance art complete with music. Presenting Me 1 and Me 2, two artists who say they leave their art up to you, and yet Me 1 and Me 2 struggle not only about the meaning of art, but who really defines that meaning. Fancy Schmancy explores the making of performance art, the merging of self with art and with the other. It an exploration of twinness that Dr. Suess would applaud. Zaslow’s performance will occur in front of Jeffrey Schrier’s installation Unfinished Flight.

This event was funded in part by Poets & Writers, Inc. with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
