Sound all the lofty instruments of war

Today is the 608th anniversary of the coronation of King Henry V. To mark the occasion, Folger ENCORES returns to the beginning of the story with Shakespeare’s historic drama, 1 Henry IV.

Director Rosa Joshi introduces the play's climactic battle sequence, featuring the 14-member ensemble performing choreography by Alice Gosti and U. Jonathan Toppo on an ever-transforming set designed by Sara Ryung Clement. 

The "alarum of the battle" comes in the form of original music and sound by Palmer Hefferan and lighting by Jesse Belsky. All of these elements (including the athletic costumes designed by Kathleen Geldard) blend beautifully in this energetic, highly stylized battle scene.

We hope you enjoy this and other ENCORES to come! Keep an eye on your inbox each week as we continue to share our favorite moments from the Folger stage. Want to catch up?

The Oedipus Project

Tue, April 27, 2021

3:30 PM – 6:00 PM EDT

A dramatic reading of Sophocles’ Oedipus the King as a catalyst for a powerful, global conversation about environmental justice.

The Oedipus Project presents acclaimed actors reading scenes from Sophocles’ Oedipus the King on Zoom as a catalyst for powerful, constructive, global conversations about climate change, ecological disaster, and environmental justice. Sophocles’ ancient play, first performed in 429 BC, just after a plague that killed nearly one-third of the Athenian population, is a story of arrogant leadership, ignored prophecy, intergenerational curses, willful blindness, and a pestilence and ecological collapse that ravages the archaic city of Thebes. Seen through this lens, Oedipus the King appears to have been a powerful tool for helping Athenians communalize trauma and loss, while interrogating their own complicit role in the suffering, not just of those around them but of generations to come.

This event is presented as part of the Nobel Prize Summit: Our Planet, Our Future, hosted by the Nobel Foundation and organized by the National Academy of Sciences in partnership with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre/Beijer Institute.

Featuring performances by Bill Murray (Lost in Translation), Frances McDormand (Nomadland), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), Frankie Faison (The Wire), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Marjolaine Goldsmith (Company Manager of Theater of War Productions), and Jumaane Williams (New York City Public Advocate), and a Chorus of Nobel Prize-winning scientists.

Translated, directed, and facilitated by Bryan Doerries.

The event Zoom link will be distributed and available to registered attendees starting 2 days prior to the event.

Turgeon Professor of Drama Kenyon College), Lars Hanson (Kenyon College, Class of 1986), Frankie Faison (The Wire), Bill Camp (The Night Of), Marjolaine Goldsmith (Dress), and David Denman (The Office).

Electrifying...if you turn out the lights, you could almost swear you were in a theater. Anchored by Dan Waller in a tour-de-force performance, it's a thrilling alternate Shakespearian universe.

–CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

A new theatrical film recorded in one live, uninterrupted take—declared "a juicy, fast-paced look at rivalry" by Chicago Tribune. Overlooked and betrayed, Banquo had a rough go of it in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Now, reexamine the “Scottish Play” through the eyes of the title character’s murdered best friend. Banquo considers how he might have responded to the prophesies of the Weird Sisters had he been in Macbeth’s position—questioning his own motives, desires, and temptations. The production is staged by Marti Lyons, one of the most sought-after directors in American theater with extensive credits at DC’s Studio Theater, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, Writers Theatre, and American Players Theatre.

A timely new theatrical film tailored for the virtual experience. It’s time to write the revolution. In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, the humble, apolitical poet Cinna hardly says a word before being mistaken for a conspirator against Caesar, and torn to pieces by an angry mob. Now Cinna searches for the subject of a new poem and invites us, the audience, to write along live in this searing exploration of words and actions, protests and power. The North American Premiere production is staged by Tyrone Phillips, founder and artistic director of acclaimed ensemble-based Definition Theatre.

Under the watchful eye of Kim’s Russian wife, Rufa, the two men set about catching up on old times. With a new world order breaking out around them, how much did the writer of The Third Man know about Philby’s secret life as a spy and did Philby betray his friend as well as his country?

Sisterhood. Love. Betrayal. Flight. Weaving together ancient myth and indie rock, Weightless tells the tale of two deeply devoted sisters, Procne and Philomela, separated by circumstance, who must travel across worlds and make devastating sacrifices in order to reunite, and the god who shapes and is shaped by that journey.

 

Inspired by a tale from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Weightless is a visual concept album—the band and the cast are one and the same—blurring the line between actors and musicians, between musical theater, video art, and rock concert, and between the virtual world and a world in which we can all hold and feel one another again.

Western cowboy culture and opera’s hallowed traditions converge to celebrate the collaborative power of art in this new documentary film.

What begins as a challenge between a composer and his librettist evolves into a creative posse of artists, musicians, and singers sharing a singular vision.

 

The power of Zane Grey's classic novel is reclaimed opening night in an opera that marries music theatre, cutting-edge stagecraft, and matinee heroes.

 

Half of all proceeds benefit The Actors Fund, a national human services organization that supports everyone in the performing arts - onstage and off!

10 years have passed since a fiercely contagious virus spread among a major city’s population, causing a mysterious white blindness and eventually, society’s collapse. Now five survivors come forward to tell a story they were not allowed to share before. A story of unprepared quarantine facilities and dehumanizing circumstances that drive citizens to expose the very brightest and darkest aspects of their human nature. A story of government negligence, isolation and persevering humanity.

 

This binaural experience places the audience in the middle of the action as a state-of-the-art sound design transports them to every location of the play and inside every character’s head. A timely and close look at social coherence, gender roles and the survival instincts of a society in crisis.

Do you ever reach for your phone in the morning before opening your eyes? Are you so distracted it’s like your devices are following you around the house? Would you consider entering a competition to win your favourite influencers fingernail?

 

Social interactions have always shaped our societies but with the unstoppable growth of social media is it getting harder for us as individuals to fit the mould? It’s true we live in an age with more possibilities for connection than ever before but we could be more disconnected than we realise.

 

“[404] Not Found” is a dynamic collage of five individuals walking through life with their phones in their hands. Filtered through the social network, they wrestle with their own image, strive to recreate themselves, fight for their convictions, and search for truth. With a world of content at their fingertips they might find what they’re searching for or lose themselves entirely.

 

Does our desire to stay connected bring us closer together or push us further apart? With social media as an ever-present mirror, are we truly seeing ourselves or are we distracted by a distorted reflection?

FIDDLER:  A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES  (2019)

 

Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles is the first in-depth documentary film that chronicles the story of Fiddler On The Roof, exploring the unexpected richness of its themes as well as its long reach across time and cultures. Fiddler On The Roof is the story of all immigrants and refugees trying to escape persecution in their homeland, of the Jewish immigrant coming to America, of the fraying of tradition, generational tension, and the loss of roots. It is a universal tale of fathers and daughters, mothers and sons trying to maintain some order in their lives amidst the rapid changes that every generation must forge. It is a spectacle that is at once awe-inspiring and accessible, a cultural landmark like no other. And more than ever, it is relevant to today. And yet, the story of how this treasure came to be and the significance it has had on our culture has never been told on film. This is the story of Fiddler On The Roof.
