Event Series Event Series: together : un/tethered

together : un/tethered

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$45 – $90

together : un/tethered explores our ties to the world and each other. These tethers connect us, but can be altered, cut, and reconnected. Weaving movement, live and original music, immersive theater, personal narrative, visual arts, and participation, the audience is taken on an evocative journey to celebrate grief and joy. 

together : un/tethered marries high quality performing arts with participation — tasks incorporating environmental and psychological reflection, expression, and ritual. This partnership transforms the audience from removed spectator to empathetic participant. Inspired by the work of prolific environmental scientists, eco-psychologists, indigenous communities, activists, writers, and more, this work shifts the collective climate narrative (far beyond the four walls of a performance) toward conservation, interdependence, courage, participation, reciprocity and what’s possible when we believe in the future, collectively.

un/tethered is composed of 3 distinct parts, each of which can be experienced individually and will premiere in Denver over the course of 2024, culminating in a durational, epic work in 2025. 

The first section, together : un/tethered, will make its World Premiere this April at The Studio Loft at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Arts Complex in Denver, Colorado with the support of Denver Arts & Venues. un/tethered is HOLDTIGHT’s most sustainable production to date, incorporating natural elements such as food-scrap dyed set pieces and costumes, reclaimed set materials, and more. This piece has been developed with support from Denver Arts and Venues, CreateArt, Carroll Hall, and Rino Arts District.

together : un/tethered is Conceptualized & Directed by Gwendolyn Gussman. Cast & Collaborators include Musical Director & Composer Daniel Weidlein, Set Designer & Textile Artist Maki Teshima, Lighting Designer Alex Taylor, Performers & Collaborators Divya Maus, Xenia Mansour, Nico Gonzales, Xochitl Portillo, Bailey Harper, and Stage Manager Emma Kimball
