Felicity Nove: Poured Paintings

Informed from my recent work on the nature of “scale” in art and science – paintings evocative of deep sink-holes, galactic hazes, and swirling cosmos which view expansive and stellar worlds through a microscope – I return to a more intimate world of exploration.

In this new series, I focus on the internal and phenomenological landscape.  Inspired by the poems and colors of William Blake’s drawings, my new paintings explore spatial and temporal consciousness.  Created through kinesthetic awareness and intentionality there is a resulting evidence of ones own physical experience recorded by the suspended pigments and optical effects of play-of-color, iridescence, adularescence, and reflections on the canvas.

These embodied action paintings are evidence of a “body”.

“A Whirl of magic realism, heady talk and quirky wit-makes audiences think about why the are laughing!!!
-David C. Nichols, Los Angeles Times

“Tanna is a comedic gem as Mary. Some of the funniest physical comedy I have seen in a long time. She has some touching moments as well and even though she is crazy, and a criminal, you still fall in love with her…As a director, Tanna has done a great job of moving the play along and getting excellent performances out of her talented ensemble cast.”
-Irene Rubaum-Keller, Huffington Post
Directed by Tanna Frederick
A Comedy by Claire Chafee

Starring:
Karen Black, Tanna Frederick,
Cathy Arden & Alex Sedrowski

LIVE MUSIC
Original music and sound design by Edward Auslender

Claire Chafee’s elegant, richly humorous comedy is all about love: romantic love, family love, sibling love, lesbian love, sexual love, and the sometimes strange but wonderful things that we do to satisfy our deepest desires and longings. Funny, sexy and occasionally poignant, “Why We Have A Body” will make you, like Lily and Renee, want to keep coming back for more.

The score is recreated live at each performance by five remarkable musicians.
A playful mix of jazz, funk, blues and classical music, combined with original sound effects, dynamically interacting with the 4 actresses.

Band Members:
KYLE O’DONNELL (Saxophonist)
DAVID ABRAMS(Guitarist)
TREVOR STEER (Pianist)
COOPER APPELT (bassist)
ROBERT HUMPHREYS (drummer and percussionist)

Lili’s a private eye. Her specialty is divorce cases, investigating adulterous husbands. But Lili herself is having an affair with a married woman, Renee, who is (or was, up until this point) a heterosexual.

Lili has a sister, Mary, a career criminal who compulsively robs convenience stores at gunpoint. But Mary is willing to make an effort at having a straight (i.e., non-criminal life). For this, she will have Lili’s assistance.
More than anything, Lili and Mary want to be family. But their mother, Eleanor, is forever exploring cultures in some other country or on some other continent. Mary and Lili long for their Mom.

Claire Chafee is the playwright. “Why We Have A Body” is her best-known play. It premiered in San Francisco in 1993, when it enjoyed a long run, and was later successfully revived there last year. Ms. Chafee’s other plays include “5 Women on a Hill in Spain,” “Darwin’s Finches,” and “Even Among These Rocks.”

Tanna Frederick directs, and portrays Mary. A critically praised audience favorite, she recently concluded record-breaking long runs on stage in “Sylvia” and “Just 45 Minutes from Broadway” at Edgemar Center, where she also appeared in “Always…But Not Forever.” She also appeared in Robey Theatre Company’s “For The Love of Freedom: Toussaint” and at Skylight Theatre in “A Safe Place.”  Her lively film career includes performances in “Hollywood Dreams,” “Irene in Time,” “Queen of the Lot” and the upcoming “Just 45 Minutes From Broadway,” “The M Word,” and more. She has also been involved with philanthropies ranging from Save Our Surf to the Iowa Film Festival.

******************************************************************

Mrs. Helen Alving’s struggle with the ghosts of her past is about to come to an end. Tomorrow, commemorating the tenth anniversary of her husband’s death, a new orphanage will be dedicated in his name.

For twenty-nine years, since her mother and two aunts arranged for her to marry the wealthy, charming Captain Alving, Helen has kept a dark secret – the reality of her late husband’s deviant excesses and his disease.  Now, with her son Osvald finally home to stay after many years abroad, a triumphant new life begins.  The past will be buried forever.

But her spiritual liberation is about to meet a catastrophic fate in one of the great plays of the world stage by one of its greatest dramatists, Henrik Ibsen.  This English language adaptation of “Ghosts” will prove as haunting for modern audiences as its title.

Doug Kaback adapts and directs. He has previously directed shows for the Old Globe, Fountain Theatre, Cornerstone Theatre, Los Angeles Theatre Center, East West Players, Odyssey Theatre and other venues. He has written over forty plays, and is a Professor at Cal State Northridge.

Michelle Danner plays Helene. The Artistic Director of Edgemar Center for the Arts, she recently appeared in “Hello, Herman,” a feature film which she also directed for All In Films. Her stage acting credits include “Hedda Gabler,” “Antigone,” “The House of Yes,” “The Shadow Box,” and much more.

The cast also includes James Giordano, Nate Golon and Lucy Honigman
