After a lauded initial year, we welcome back the Ensemble Theatre Company for another Casting the Canvas performance. Using new works and themes, visual arts and performance will intermingle in this unique experience. Local actors from Ensemble Theatre Chattanooga will present brief original plays written specifically for this project, and we will rove throughout the museum to engage with various works from the Hunter collection.
Casting the Canvas II is an opportunity for audience members to delight in original plays inspired by the Hunter’s collection. We’ll rove throughout the museum to engage with plays by:
Leigh Anne Battersby
Garry Lee Posey
Mary Christa Jaramillo-Bolin
Pieces to be performed include "Veiled" inspired by Jeanette Rachelle De Sharchet Talbot Bartlette, "Hunters Old and New" inspired by a work of the same name, "Freak Show" inspired by The Circus is in Town, "Wings" inspired by Phenomena Royal Violet Visitation, "She Never Saw the Midwife" inspired by Alicia Henry's Untitled, and "The Legend of the Glass Dress" inspired by Reclining Dress Impression with Drapery.
ETC strives to create dynamic and unique experiences for audiences and artists by producing shows that engage the imagination, evaluate the human experience, and encourage conversation.
$5 for Hunter members
