Speak Like a Green Girl

July 2015

Elsewhere Studios Artist Residency

Paonia, CO

 

In this actor’s nightmare, Ophelia rises from her burial ground underwater only to realize that an audience has gathered in expectation of a performance. With a memory drenched in decades at sea, she wrings out the misconceptions and examines the infections of a life confused by mixed messages. Diving into a love affair, a pregnancy, and her own body of water, she performs herself for a new audience.

 

Inspired by Hamlet.

Presented with the support of Elsewhere Studios Artist Residency.

 

Written and performed by Caitlyn Tella

with Chris Garre as the displaced Ophelia

I wrote about Ophelia and the development of this piece at the Elsewhere Studios Artist-in-Residence blog here.
