Blueprint Theater Project, Co-Founders/Artistic Directors Kevin Connell and Ellen Orenstein, present the World-Premiere of THE HUMAN VARIATIONS, an immersive, site-specific theatrical symphony that explores human interaction in our age of cyber intimacy. Preview performances of THE HUMAN VARIATIONS begin tonight, February 7 prior to an official press opening of February 10 at Red Roots Gallery (25 Central Park West, at 62nd Street) in Manhattan.
Two men. Six women. Drink. Dance. Desperate loneliness. What begins as innocent banter over cocktails at an art opening quickly transforms into fantasy, nightmare and possible redemption. In THE HUMAN VARIATIONS' four movements (Allegro, Largo, Scherzo and Rondo), characters collide and share intimacy and closeness, while their small, seemingly innocuous everyday interactions become more and more exposed, shaping who they are and what they obsess about. Allegro, Largo and Scherzo were originally produced as individual workshops in three separate site-specific locations in New York City. The full Symphony, THE HUMAN VARIATIONS, includes the premier of Rondo (the fourth and final movement).
The backdrop for THE HUMAN VARIATIONS is a photography exhibit featuring the work of Abby Verbosky. Audience members are encouraged to view the artist's installation before or after the production. Free wine will be served.
