Web Exclusive: Dayboynightgirl
Arts Eclectic isn’t on the air this week (we’re off to make room for this month’s Get Involved feature). The bad news is that this feature on Da! Theatre Collective’s new show Dayboynightgirl won’t be on the broadcast airwaves. The good news is that producing this piece as a web-only feature lets us spend a little more time with it, and give you a mega-sized edition of what’s normally a two-minute feature.
Dayboynightgirl was inspired by the novella The Romance of Photogen & Nycteris, written by Scottish author George MacDonald in 1882; it’s the story of two children, stolen at birth, who are raised to only know daylight or darkness. Over the course of a year or or so of workshopping, the show evolved into its current form, featuring movement, music, and storytelling but no props and no set.
Director Heather Huggins, playwright Kirk German, composer Catherine Davis, and choreographer Lisa Del Rosario came into the studio a few hours before the premiere of the show to talk about it.
Wednesday June 6 – Saturday June 9 at 8:00 pm
Saturday June 9 and Sunday June 10 at 3:00 pm
at the Rollins Studio Theatre of the Long Center
