Kali Quinn Performs Two Original and Teaches Workshops at the Granoff Center
Providence, RI – Through a combination of two original solo shows, witness virtuoso physical theatre artist and musician Kali Quinn transforms into characters ranging from age five to ninetyone, all taking you on a remarkable emotional journey from 1917 to present day that questions our will to go on and who to take with us. Overture to a Thursday Morning will be presented April 26 and 27 at 7.30pm at the Granoff Center on Brown University’s Campus as part of the Creative Arts Council’s FITT Artist‐In‐Residence Grant.
Through movement and the creative use of household objects, live violin composition, and projections, along with her ability to voice young and old, angry and kind, Kali Quinn invites you to her unique and riveting theatrical experience that plays with both autobiographical and fictionalized material:
“It’s amazing how much we all don’t know about our own births and our parents’ life experiences.
Please come see the performance to share in, ponder, and celebrate these stories and family secrets.”
The story follows the journeys of Lila, a spunky twenty‐something rock star, and Julia, a ninetysomething nursing home patient and their hidden family histories. Audiences and critics from throughout the United States have described these solos shows as inspiring, beautiful, stunning, funny, moving and magical. Michael Miller of the Berkshire Review for the Arts raves:
“Our attention is riveted on Kali Quinn’s virtuosic performance… a unique range of voice and movement… extraordinary skill and imagination… deeply affecting.”
Kali has previously performed this work Off‐Off Broadway at Theater Row, PS 122, HERE Arts Center, and The Tank, along with performances at Ko Festival of Performance, University of Rochester, Williams College, Coastal Carolina University, Mississippi University for Women, and Sandglass Theater in Vermont.
In addition to the performance, Kali will teach four free workshops that are open to the public. These workshops will focus on various layers of creating your own solo work and take place from 6‐ 8pm in the Kooper Studio at the Granoff Center: April 18 (Movement), April 19 (Music), April 23 (Objects), and April 24 (Text).
