It’s been almost a week since we wrapped on Improbable Frequency which means it’s reflection time. Here is where we get to do a post mortem, we look back on the crazy wild adventure that was improbable frequency.
So what is it that we have learned. Well for starters, putting on a musical is quite an undertaking, but that’s what we do here at Solas Nua, we aim high. We never take the easy way out, because good art doesn’t come out of easy. And we did it, the show came together in a dizzying array song, dance, and word play like none that Solas Nua had seen before. Our cast was amazing and we thank all of them for the time and effort they put in. It was fun guys :-)
What else did we learn, well, when giving people a password to enter a super secret club, using the term ‘cruciverbalist’ may not be your best option. While it makes perfect sense once you’ve seen the tongue twisting, word bending spectacular, your patrons invariably will look at you like you’re insane and tentatively make their way to the elevator wondering if they will ever remember that crazy phrase by the time they reach the 6th floor. Word to the wise, pick normal english words like radio waves or atomic… but where’s the fun in that right?!
Perhaps another insightful revelation we stumbled upon is that there’s something to this ‘site specific’ thing. All the rumblings I’ve been hearing are that people are really excited to get out of the traditional theatre and experience something new. we’re the only theatre company in DC that is doing this right now, and it’s great that so many people are behind it. And what’s even better, it doesn’t end here. We’ve got more fantastic venues ready and waiting to be transformed into the ultimate theatre experience. We think you’re gonna be impressed with all of them.
Even after all the lessons learned the most important things we have taken away is the amazing dedication of you guys. With the exception of one or two evenings our house, or more precisely our night club, was full. We can’t thank you all enough
So that’s it folks. Improbable Frequency is officially closed and it’s full steam ahead. November is a cornucopia of events starting with the incomparable Julie Feeney, followed by a special collaboration with Project Brand New including Úna McKevitt’s Conceived and Directed. Then we round out the month with visual artist Karl Burke. In short we’ve got a jam packed month with some pretty amazing artists that you will not want to miss.
