Selections announced for New Visions/New Voices 2014

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, is pleased to announce its 13th New Visions/New Voices workshop from May 16 to May 18, 2014.   This award-winning biennial showcase helps theaters develop new works for young audiences, which are presented as rehearsed readings for conference of producers, educators, playwrights, and students.

There will eight new works that will be part of New Visions/New Voices 2014 as well as 6 international playwright observers - an awesome group of playwrights and plays.

Atlanta, GA
Alliance Theatre: Tell Me My Dream
Tell Me My Dream
, a new play written by Pearl Cleage and directed by Rosemary Newcott, follows a diverse group of Atlanta children who decide to defy the 1909 racial segregation laws that prevent them from attending a concert together when the Metropolitan Opera comes to town. Bound together by friendship and their love of music, they become part of a creative solution that changes their lives and their city in unexpected and lasting ways.

Belfast, Northern Ireland
Cahoots NI Children’s Theatre Company: The Gift

How can the blind or partially sighted engage deeply with theater alongside a sighted audience? This question inspired The Gift, a play by Charles Way with Cahoots NI Children’s Theatre Company, which tells the story of Mary—an ordinary girl with an extraordinary gift for playing the piano, and the effect her drive and ambition to become a concert pianist has on her and her family. The story, with music composed by Garth McConaghie and direction by Paul McEneaney, is told through a potent blend of sound, language, touch, smell and music.

Bethesda, MD
Imagination Stage: Aviatrix

Nine year old B struggles with weight and is obsessed with flying.  Her life changes forever when a mysterious older woman appears in her tree desperately searching for a place to land.  Inspired by the legacy and mystery of Amelia Earhart, noted playwright Suzan Zeder’s Aviatrix with direction by Kate Bryer, is a play for all ages about women and girls who learn to fly literally and metaphorically.

Chicago, IL
Steppenwolf for Young Adults: This is Modern Art

This is Modern Art
, written by Idris Goodwin and Kevin Coval and directed by Jessica Thebus, uncovers the most high profile graffiti bombing in Chicago street art history.  Based on true events, this suspenseful drama tells the story of four Chi-town kids who pulled off the impossible.

Cork, Ireland
Graffiti Theatre: Melody of the Moon/ Gile Na Gealaí

Safe in a boat of silk, the babies journey to the moon and the stars. The Boatman sings of the sea in the skies, the silver fish in glittering nets, the petal-dust of star-drops. He wants to build a silken ladder to the Moon, to find the Moon and her mystery, to pick silver apples by her glimmering light. The Moon herself is elusive and changeable; she appears in different shapes at different times, in different guises and in different sounds. Melody of the Moon, devised and directed by Emelie FitzGibbon and Sìle Ní Bhroin and composed by Fiona Kelleher, is a piece which is highly visual, poetic and calming, and is intended for the very youngest of audiences.

Minneapolis, MN
Children’s Theatre Company: The Arrival

Based on the graphic novel by Shaun Tan and conceived and created by Peter C. Brosius and Jocelyn Clarke.  Shaun Tan’s lauded book is the inspiration for this potent, poetic exploration of the immigrant experience.  Told entirely through movement, music, and visual projections, the story follows a man who leaves his family to build a new life for them in a new world.

Vincennes, France
Written by Karin Serres: Louise/the Bears
Part of the Translation Project
Louise/the Bears
is an original story about a girl who suddenly notices a huge transparent white bear walking behind her. Two other bears appear behind her father and her sister. And soon, every inhabitant of the city is followed by a bear. The issue is this: Louise is the only one who sees and listens to these bears. Is she mad or are the others blind? Deirdre Kelly Lavrakas directs this hilarious yet intimate play exploring the fringe of imaginary worlds.

Washington, DC
Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences: Oliver of Brazil

Based on Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist, this new musical explores the life of children in the favelas of contemporary Rio de Janiero.  With book and lyrics by Karen Zacarías, music by Deborah Wicks La Puma, and directed by Scot Reese, this Brazilian twist on a classic celebrates Carnival, Capoeira, and Samba, while shining a light on the real and pressing plight of the street children of Rio.

Two additional projects have been named as alternates, should one of the other projects be unable to participate:

Cleveland, OH
Cleveland Public Theatre: Radio Call
Written by Eric Schmiedl
