an imaginary History of the end of the World from 1954 - 20XX"
Written and directed by William D. Brattain
the shadow of the monorail sits a building with no name. Once a nightclub,
most recently bland office space, and formerly a theater, we have swooped
in to reappropriate this space according to our whims and desires: this
space fallen into disuse by the same calamity that has rendered so much
of our fair city abandoned and flailing.
The Irrealist Theater (TIT) defines Irrealism as the subjective use of established, empirical truths for the auspices of awesome and aberrant circumstances. Fiercely devoted to the creation of new work in theater, installation, and sculpture, TIT is developing the Irrealist aesthetic for the masses, for artists to use as they see fit, and to usher in a new age of art at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
We have many, many allies.
Working out of Implied Violence's secret warehouse and utilizing the talents of Seattle's most dedicated and hard-working artists, The Irrealist Theater, a new company brandishing a new artistic movement presents to you a new site-specific play (this is as it should be):
"Amniotes: an imaginary History of the
end of the World from 1954 - 20XX"
Featuring the work of:
Actors Meredith Binder, Sharon Dummar and Jeffrey Willey, plus many
"Amniotes" received a staged reading in December of 2008 at the Free Sheep Foundation in its former Belltown location.
Location: 2115 5th Avenue, Seattle, Washington
In conjunction with "Amniotes", visual artist Thomas Vincent Chapel presents new art and installation work in "Beyond Boss", featuring KRONOS.
Opening reception: August 12th. Closing reception:
Produced in cooperation with Implied Violence, Boom! Theater, GreenStage and the Seattle Founders Day Festival.
