By Cristina Pitter and Serena Miller
cracking open is a story about cosmic connections and the bittersweet brutality of love. With poetry written by Cristina Pitter and live cello by Serena Miller, cracking open explores the imprints a soul can leave, the exhilarations and exhaustions of intimacy, and how to restring a heart to play again. Does it play again?
Presented as part of
THE EXPONENTIAL FESTIVAL 2019
A PLEASURE, A MESS, A THRILL, AND A DREAM
Jan. 4 - Feb 3 at a variety of Brooklyn's most eclectic venues
Brooklyn, NY—The Exponential Festival is a month-long January festival for NYC-based emerging, experimental performing artists, now in its fourth year. Performances will take place January 4 - February 3 in partnership with The Brick, Chez Bushwick, The Glove, JACK, Target Margin Theater's The Doxsee, Triskelion’s Douglas Elliman Studio Theater and Vital Joint. Panels will take place at The Bushwick Starr. The participants in this multi-artist, multi-venue festival are committed to ecstatic creativity in the face of commercialism. Exponential is driven by inclusiveness and a diversity of artists, forms, and ideas coupled with utopian resource-sharing, mentoring, and the championing of risky, rigorous work in eclectic fields to keep theatre kicking.
