2014 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: Antarctica
As part of the 2014 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival, Risk Theater Initiative will present Antarctica by Carolyn Raship. Risk Theater Initiative returns to producing after a six year hiatus with this absurdist fairy tale on growing up. Shy Magda (Jessica Cavanaugh) meets frenetic fellow 15-year-old Winnie (Marianne Galloway) ... and they immediately become best friends forever. In the certainty that “it will change everything,” the two impulsively embark on a journey to the unknown tundra of Antarctica, their path fraught with boys, penguins and an enchanted polar bear (Chad Gowen Spear) with a dire message. A darkly comic fantasia of kaleidoscopic proportions.
