Name: Laura Vogels
What is your current project?
Our newest show, Quotidian, features 12 original stories crafted by the ensemble about some of the most defining and pivotal moments of their lives. A tapestry of sight and soundscapes, Quotidian is a tribute to the company’s diversity and how the past has shaped our identity.
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
We are performing in a very unique space at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory. It is an all white room with catwalk style seating. The show is interweaved with shadow play, projections and live music. We love it!
What’s next for you?
We are continuing to develop original works and exploring established works that have that magical factor- Lorca´s concept of “DUENDE”. We want to produce plays infused with a Primitive Grace in order to shift the audience´s paradigm so they will experience reality in a new, profound life altering way.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Spill at EST. It was a moving and excellent piece of journalistic theatre.
Any advice for your peers?
Surround yourself with people who are generous of spirit and on the same mission as you. Collaborators are the soul of this business. Together you are unstoppable. And in the spirit of the show: Don’t wait. Do it now.
