INDIEGOGO: Experimental Theater - PARROT TALK
My name is Julius Ferraro. I am a playwright, performer, and critic, born, raised, and based in Philadelphia. Parrot Talk will be the second full-length play I present in Philadelphia. I wrote it over the course of two years, and am very excited to produce it at the historic Da Vinci Art Alliance this March and April!
Parrot Talk is about three characters attempting to figure out their place in the world, finding themselves unmoored, without a clear direction forward. They scramble to define themselves, only to discover that language, in particular, is outrageous. Words are lies, obstructions, workarounds, fantasies, traps, lures, seduction. But what other tools do we have to define ourselves?
Why does Philly need Parrot Talk? Philadelphia has a strong history of supporting experimental performance, especially dance and theater. Particularly, we have excellent physical theater practitioners who explore the line of theater and dance, with institutions such as Pig Iron, Headlong, and Mascher Space. There is not, however, a space yet for experimental language theater. I have been told again and again, either in directors’ notes or on the sly, that these incredibly talented dancers, or musicians, and theatermakers hate language—that they cut as much of it as possible out of their work.
"Parrot Talk" recognizes the power and limitations of language and interrogates it. It works to puzzle, to bamboozle, to slip a loose harness over the grizzled mane of wild perception and chase it down a short while. READ MORE
