Cartogoraphasia is the first experiment from Telephone Bronco Theater Company. Under the auspices of the Swarthmore Project in Theater, the company committed themselves to working as a collective and mashing up their different areas of expertise to generate a new work and to explore new territories in devising performance. This process has been mainly character-based, and Cartogoraphasia is a celebration of The World’s Greatest Explorers–but probably not the ones audiences are most familiar with. The piece weaves together the narratives of six extremely varied characters and brings together amazing stories of intrepid explorer moments for both characters and performers alike.
Cartogoraphasia opens the first weekend of September at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, and also runs the second weekend. It’s at Circle of Hope on at 1125 South Broad Street. Tickets are for sale at the Fringe Festival website: http://www.livearts-fringe.org/details.cfm?id=1326.
