The Durham Production Company: ThaxAve Pop-Up
Our feature project is the Durham Cabaret: 1002 Thaxton Avenue. An exciting new take on a classic form, the Durham Cabaret weaves together performances by local artists with interactive drama that lets the audience explore the challenging decisions inherent to love and life.
As a precursor to the cabaret, we’re producing several pop-up experiences throughout Durham.
“ThaxAve Popups” are scenes and acts from the cabaret, recreated in public spaces to entertain and build excitement for the show.
Our main character, Elphera, is confronted by her brother Daniel about her absence from the goings-on of the family.
Elphera and Daniel begin to argue, and as they do, two “shadow figures” representing their ids appear and mimic their movements.
The argument escalates to the point where Elphera breaks a glass. The sound of the glass breaking causes Elphera and Daniel to become aware of their shadows, and the shadows take over the scene, performing ground acrobatics as a representation of Elphera and Daniel’s frustration and argument.
