Take Care
Tickets $15 – $25 – $35

Take Care is a participatory performance that investigates the ways we respond to present and imminent danger. This evening-length performance gathers and reconfigures our personal language around emergency preparedness, abandonment, and consolation. Niegel Smith writes: “I wanted to make a piece for our resident acting company, The Bats, that engages them as interpretive and generative artists. I invited my long-time collaborator Todd Shalom (Elastic City) to create a performance that explores The Bats’ most urgent personal and global concerns. So, we’re inviting theatergoers inside a vicious hurricane — a perfect storm to expose the ways we take care of and neglect one another.”

Take Care includes individualized prompts for audience participation alongside scripted moments for The Bats. Audiences will have the opportunity to choose their desired level of participation—they can be on stage or around it.

The production features The Bats: Tommy Bernardi (The Nomad, Student Body), Maki Borden (#serials@theflea), Rachel Lin (Mary-Kate Olsen is in Love, #serials@theflea), Ashton Muñiz (The Blind), Chris Murphy, Rebeca Rad (The Mysteries), Brittane Rowe (The Mysteries), Isabella Sazak (The Woman Who Was Aqcuitted, Sarah Flood in Salem Mass), Ryan Stinnett (The Nomad, The System), and Catherine Woodard (The Blind, #serials@theflea), Hye Young Chyun, Taylor Edelhart, Ethan Hardy, Jax Jackson, Matthew Stango, and Jennifer Tchiakpe. The creative team includes Daniel Soule (scenic design), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting design), Claudia Brown (costume design), Miles Polaski (sound design), Ethan Hardy (choreography), Taylor Edelhart (dramaturgy), Cristina Pitter and Hye Young Chyun (props masters), Lilleth Glimcher (assistant director), and Keith Paul Medelis (production stage manager).
