CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS AND SPIN FOR A CHARACTER ONLINE


TWISTED VILLAGE

Twisted Village is a unique, massively collaborative Fishbon mainstage event that includes theatre, total audience participation, feasting, dancing, music, games, carnival antics, workshops and much more. The event gets its name from the seemingly absurd conflicts and machinations that arise from the quest for love and relationship. It’s Spring after all and what could be a better subject for a Spring event than the dance of love?

Stage Fighting Workshop

Saturday, April 24th, 1-2pm at the Pescadrome

Now that we’ve got cool weapons, it’s time to learn how to use them. J. Khan will be sharing stage fighting techniques and choreographing a battle sequence that could have been in EverQuest II.


Props Workshop

Friday, April 30th, 8-11pm at the Pescadrome

You’ve got to have props (crowns, wings, puppets, vehicles and other cool stuff). We’ll use this workshop to build those special items that make the character. Jill will be orchestrating the prop fest with found materials and cool techniques.

Myth and Ritual Workshop


Thursday, May 6th, 7-11pm at the Pescadrome

Twisted Village is not only a fun play with wacky characters, it’s an archetypal journey into the underworld and back that mirrors the trials and joys of love.

Costume Workshop

Saturday, May 8th, 1pm-6pm at the Pescadrome

You’ve got to have a costume, so you’ll want to come to this one for material and sewing tips, not to mention fun with the other heroes and villains of the tale in a Twisted costume-a-thon.


Hair and Makeup Workshop


Sunday, May 16th, 4-6pm at the Pescadrome

Mythic tales are a great excuse to try out radical hair and make-up, so check out this afternoon of cosmetic madness. We’ll be experimenting with airbrush, extensions and much more.


THE PLAY

The Twisted play is an epic tale of love and conflict based on Homer’s Iliad and the myth of Demeter and Persephone written by screenwriter J. Khan. It has 12 principle speaking parts and lots of cameos and supporting roles. The rest of the participants are villagers who receive characters, attributes and special prop ideas when they spin the magic wheel to sign up for the event


WHERE WILL IT BE?

The event will take place at two Pedregosa Street homes and the 2 city blocks in between. Beginning at 435 E. Pedregosa and moving from there in procession to 1900 Garden Street (corner of Garden and Pedregosa), the play will be divided into two segments with dancing an hijinks afterward.

Mission and Purpose

Fishbon’s Purpose:
Fishbon's purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art.  It is also to provide exhibition media for the artists and their art forms.

Fishbon’s Mission:
Fishbon's mission is to encourage collaboration between artists, technologists, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time, compelling aesthetic experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.  Fishbon believes the synergy (sharings of perspectives and skills) made possible in a collaborative space creates a unique and special context for art.  By providing context, physical infrastructure, tools, mentoring support and encouragement for creative collaboration, Fishbon is an experiential incubator for emerging cooperative working models.  Much more about the process experience than final product, Fishbon creates a diverse "interactive" learning community that would be difficult to achieve in isolated individual working environments.

Fishbon is a 501 (c) (3) arts organization
