Today At The Clinton Street Theater
Fertile Ground--THE HIGH CAPTAIN
Fertile Ground Festival of New Work is a 11-day arts festival that is held every January in Portland, Oregon. This city-wide festival is focused on new work in the Arts. It features world premiere projects, staged readings, developing works and a myriad of other arts events from the Portland creative community. The Festival includes dozens of Portland-generated new works each year. From fully staged world premieres, workshops and readings of theatre, to ensemble and collaborative driven work, dance, comedy and film…this festival spans the spectrum of creative endeavor and seeds the next generation of creation through artist conversations, workshops, lunchtime readings and more.
Exactly one year into an uncharted era in American presidential politics, this bold, new satire poses a simple question: Is our current political climate any less surreal than one whose leaders are high on gas fumes? Several shipwrecked barge workers attempt to set up a government on their desert island home, a task complicated by the fact they are all high on their vessel’s petroleum cargo. Faced with the challenges of forming a new nation, sides are taken, and an election is held to determine the new “captain” of the island. A singularly bizarre and original theatre experience, The High Captain seeks to provide catharsis, perspective—and maybe even a little hope.
