The aim of the Audacity Solo Salon is to support and nurture both established and emerging solo performers in the north Texas area. It is also a way to extend the mission of the Dallas Solo Festbeyond just the annual festival itself.
This quarterly series will be a way for solo artists to present, rehearse, experiement with and develop their work in front of supportive audiences. Come on out and see a new one-person show in progress...
This installment in what has become a semi-quarterly series from Audacity Theatre Lab will feature excerpts from solo shows-in-progress by Justin Lemieux, Erin Singleton and Abel Flores.
Works for thr evening include:
Girl Dad - Written and Perfomed by Justin Lemieux
A rollercoaster journey through relationships, Girl Dad is a heart-warming exploration of one man's understanding of masculinity. When Justin becomes father to only daughters his expectations are upended and he must confront his assumptions about what girls experience in the world.
Diagnose Me - Written and Performed by Erin Singleton
Erin can spot misalignments. In this rousing show formatted like a TED talk-turned-confessional, Erin explores what happens when a person confronts her crippling need to fix the people in her life, but can't.
AFJ - Written by Abel Flores, Jr. & Tyler Cochran, Performed by Abel Flores, Jr.
AFJ wants to be president and everything is riding on this speech. Will he be able to get your vote or crack under the pressure of his bold promises? This one-man show harkens back to the great political speeches of our past world leaders while still reminding us of the haunting qualities of the current political climate. Co-written by Tyler Cochran, Abel Flores Jr. brings his alter ego, AFJ, to the spotlight with a performance that will allow audiences to witness the absurdity of certain candidates that we know all too well.
