Looking for Lilith Theatre Company
Devised by the ensemble
Looking for Lilith has created a new, multi-lingual, multi-media work, Uncaged Desenjauladas, combining the talents of local LFL artists & Latina actors, and our Guatemalan partners. Slant audiences will witness the artistic journey of the Guatemaltecas over the last decade, as they have discovered their artistic voices and used those voices to educate and uplift other women. This journey is encapsulated through the national icon of the quetzal, a bird who does not sing when in captivity. The production will include existing scenes created in Guatemala, integrated with new work created this fall, and video of both new and existing scenes. The production is a reflection of a decade of work in a groundbreaking international collaboration.

Agatha is running for Student Council, the cheer squad, quick recall and the lead role in the school play. But apparently there’s a lot of competition to be considered for co-assistant treasurer, towel holder, tally taker and chorus member #4. As Agatha deals with her speech impediment and self-esteem, she finds an unlikely friend in a Mexican exchange student, rekindles her flame for Simon the Steak and Shake boy, and somehow finds the strength to get through high school.

Charles and Alex are collaborating singer-songwriters who are deeply thankful to share their music not only with each other, but also with the community. Connecting with others through music is a special privilege that they celebrate with every chance they get to perform. Their co-written lyrics originate from a variety of inspirations, and often tell stories – fictional, humorous, historical, playful, and sometimes truly personal. Some songs use characters and imagery that take listeners outside of them selves, while others come from a more private place, expressing and invoking immense feeling and meaning. Although safely described as a folk duo, Hey Hey Honey invites elements of blues, Americana, bluegrass, country, and alternative rock. They both sing and perform their songs on guitar, but they also play other supportive roles: Alex with fiddle and harmonies, and Charles with mandolin and harmonica. They just finished recording their debut album and look forward to sharing it with you soon!
