Solo Chicken Productions return to the coop’s inaugural work for New Brunswick performances in Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton and Sackville.
Solo Chicken Productions have shared the news that they are taking the coop’s inaugural work, A Record of Us, on the road for their first tour of New Brunswick. In early June the company will perform their inaugural work in Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton and Sackville, forging new partnerships with Saint John Theatre Company, the Aberdeen Centre, and Live Bait Theatre.
A Record of Us was created using the text of celebrated New Brunswick author David Adams Richards as the catalyst, resulting in a physical theatre performance that evokes the raw beauty, enduring humour, and hardscrabble realities of life in this province.
A Record of Us premiered as a main stage offering at the 2016 NotaBle Acts Theatre Festival and was created through residency opportunities with Charlotte Street Arts Centre, and the Fredericton Playhouse.
The creation of A Record of Us began in the spring of 2015 when Lesandra Dodson and Lisa Anne Ross first launched the coop, a performance collective for professional artists to research, develop and perform original works of physical theatre while supporting the artistic growth of emerging NB artists through training and performance opportunities. This piece celebrates the work of a new generation of NB artists who are now making a resounding impact in their field – since the premiere in 2016 the coop company members have been busy training and creating theatre across Canada and are thrilled to be returning to Fredericton to share the work across the province.
A Record of Us is directed by Lesandra Dodson and Lisa Anne Ross, and features the collaborative work of Jean-Michel Cliche, Kira Chisholm, Alex Donovan, Ian Goff, Alexa Higgins, and Lexi McCrae. The tour will include Technical Direction by Trent Logan, and Stage Management by Dee Chiasson.
