"Disappearing Act" at the Kleinert/James Art Center in Woodstock

"Disappearing Act" is a staged reading presented by Rabbit Hole Ensemble. May 18 and 19 (Friday & Saturday) at 7 p.m.; May 20 at 2 p.m. Rabbit Hole Ensemble is pleased to introduce itself to the Woodstock community with three staged readings of "Disappearing Act" written and directed by Artistic Director/NYIT Award winner Edward Elefterion. Tickets are $10 (suggested donation). It is a play about the cost of making art in a world of increasing indifference. Three actors rehearse a play about three artists at different points in their careers: Cindy, a budding playwright who is studying (and having an affair) with her professor Dale, who chose a career in academia over moving to New York and trying for an acting career, and Dale's old flame Eleanor, who moved to New York all those years ago and has just won the Pulitzer for Drama - and is invited to speak at Dale's college. While rehearsing the play, the three actors are forced to reassess their own careers, motives, goals and definitions of success/failure. 

Rabbit Hole Ensemble introduces its award-winning minimalist aesthetic to the Hudson Valley in this inaugural presentation. Mirroring the original production, which invited audiences into the actual Brooklyn rehearsal hall used to create the work, this new presentation will use the natural intimacy of the Kleinert/James gallery space. Following each performance, the audience will be invited to participate in an informal talk back with the artists.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.
