Liz’s new piece, The Matter of Origins, will premiere in September at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland. We’ve been working on the piece for over two years now, and are currently in the midst of a two-week long stretch of rehearsals at our studios in Takoma Park. Last week, we spent a few days working on the second act of the show, which will take place in three different theaters within the arts center. In each room, we’ll be hosting a tea in which audience members, performers, and scientists interact. What does this mean? Well, we’re still figuring it out….but we’re excited by what came up in rehearsal this week. We begin with Ben giving us “the rules” of tea, then we’ll see Ted in bed, and end with Keith and Ben working on a phrase for our tea tables.
