Baltimore Annex Theater

Who Baltimore Annex Theater When Wednesday, September 8, 2010 7:00pm – $5-$10 sliding scale – All Ages Where Roots & Tendrils (map) 2 Cross St Belfast, ME, USA 04915 Other InfoBaltimore Annex Theater As part of their extensive 2010 Tour, The Baltimore Annex Theater is making a stop in Belfast at Roots & Tendrils on Wednesday, September 8th.

The Baltimore Annex Theater rends asunder the notion of theater from its warehouse apartment location in Baltimore, Maryland. The collective includes a core team of nine steady members who live where they work, plus hoards of friends and volunteers. For the last three years, the Annex has been producing and hosting multitudinous performances that span time and culture: from psychedelic film homage Fantastic Planet (2010) to classics Rhinoceros (2008) and Dr. Faustus (2009), to tragic Noh Matsu Kaze (2009), and original works by their own members and friends. They surprised and delighted the eastern half of the United States during their 2009 tour with an original based on the classic poem Beowulf, a complete world hatched from one mini-van thriving with monsters, heroes, and triumph over the void.

This fall the team is bigger, the tour is bigger, the van is slightly bigger, and the vision is expansive. “A Fistful of Flowers” takes its audience to the prismatic land of saguaros with an immersive, sprawling stage and cracked Western characters. And, as the Annex is a collective of individual artists, each show ‘s also feature a roulette of solo acts including epic poetry, enormous pom winding, and throat-singing.

The Annex’s stop at Roots & Tendrils comes right after dates in NYC, Philadelphia and Providence. From Belfast the collective will move on to the bulk of their tour making stops in Montreal, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, Austin, New Orleans, and everywhere in between.
