KYM LONGHI DEVELOPS NEW WORK "Blue/Doll/House/Beard" FOR REDEYE THEATRE'S WORKS IN PROGRESS
Kym Longhi is directing and developing a new work with MB ADAPTORS Founding Member Beth Brooks and Certifying Artist Erik Hoover for RedEye Theater's 2014 Works in Progress. "Blue/Doll/House/Beard" will merge the "Bluebeard" fairytale with Ibsen's "Dollhouse" to create a theatrical dreamscape about gendering, the power of secrets, the relationship of marriage and violence, and the Jungian aspects of the individual's quest for wholeness and intimacy with the self. Bluebeard's forbidden chamber filled with murdered wives will transform into a chamber of living dolls - a room of Noras - each one masked in a doll's fixed visage, each one striving to either reconcile themselves to their mask or to escape. This non-linear murder-mystery will ask the question: Who killed all those Noras?
