The Rose Theater Presents… (TRTP) operates in response to Haywood’s current solo exhibition at O’: Rose Theater. Using Haywood’s paintings as inspiration and fodder, Ceaseless Fun has generated work grounded in memory, meaning, and perception.
According to Haywood, the Rose Theater is “a theater that exists only in the mind” where “work is the reward, the object its ghost, and the image its memory.” Stuck somewhere between the past and a dream, the Rose Theater Players prepare for their first performance. They are intent on creating for you, the audience, something heartbreaking and spectacular and activating. But between the lines they haven’t memorized and the nostalgia they haven’t escaped, the end of the show seems further away now than ever.
TRTP is an immersive, site specific work. Audience members should expect to be touched and interacted with directly. Drinks will be available for purchase after the show. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
