Alone With All of You:
A Valentine’s Alternative
an interactive exhibition and concert that explores the ideas of aloneness and connection through improvisation, music, theater, and audience suggestion.
Saturday February 6th at 8 pm and
Sunday February 14th at 2 pm.
The White Pines Place
7908 High School Road
Elkins Park, PA 19027
Three of the Seven Invitations:
- I knew I was loved when __________________________________ .
- I would never say it out loud, but __________________________ .
- When no one’s around I _____________________________________ .
As the audience enters, you will see the White Pines Place transformed into a kind of labyrinth. The exhibition displays results of Noelle Picara’s survey, The Seven Invitations, in which participants anonymously answered questions about experiences of being alone. As you explore the exhibition, you can choose to draw on graffiti walls, make valentines, or contribute to the show in other ways. Members of Bright Invention: the White Pines Ensemble, will improvise scenes, movement and monologues, and Noelle Picara will perform original music, some written specifically for this performance, and some written on the spot with help from you. She will be accompanied by Wes Morton on percussion and Sam Nobles on double bass, as well as Bright Invention actors Michelle Pauls, Johnny Smith, Leah Holleran and Gavin Whitt. Whether you come alone or with loved ones, you will experience a new interpretation of Valentine’s Day and a shared exploration of your connections to others.
