Is there anything more you want from contemporary theatre?

Are you satisfied by the standard fare--what is, and has been,
well-hyped, well-reviewed, popular, and overplayed?

Some of the best theatre--even from the last century--is only just now
emerging, and only this weekend happening on stage for the first time
in the D.C. area.

Join us for an evening of early 20th century obscure and experimental
theatre works (including dada, surrealist, and futurist plays), as
well as a piece by Daniil Kharms, a short play by Konrad Bayer, and
new "interpretations" of American classics such as Our Town and The

Aren't you tired of theatre that doesn't even attempt to do anything
significantly different from what you get on television or at the
movies? Saturday night in Alexandria, you will see and hear what you
haven't seen or heard before--no doubt!

"Theatre Classics" is Ric Royer, John Eaton, and John Berndt, who
will be performing with Geodesic Gnome. 20th Century Avant-Garde
Theatre Classics is rare stagings, gnomic utterances, text-driven
theatre and "poetics theatre," plus a sound performance by Bonnie
Jones, on circuit boards of digital delay pedals.

Saturday, May 2nd. 8pm.

Classics" on the performance list.

Hosted by M. Magnus. This production brought to you by Yockadot
Poetics Theatre Project and the Alexandria Performing Arts
Association, in conjunction with Convergence.

Just the staging of Kharms is worth the price of admission. Kharms
is an iconoclastic Russian poet of the early Soviet literary scene,
known to have starved to death in prison during the Stalinist era;
his writings have only recently become widely available in English.
