The self-taught American artist, Joseph Cornell, lived most of his life in Queens just outside New York City. In his basement workshop, Cornell created box constructions and collages, drawing from his interest in astronomy, dance, music, fine art and popular culture, and exploring themes of time, memory, and childhood.
This On the Spot world premiere production of How to Make a Rainbow combines drama and humor, lyricism and fantasy, and features six talented actors playing multiple roles.
Visit New York City during the Worlds’ Fair of 1939, the wintry Russian Steppes, and Renaissance Florence, Italy. Follow the life of an original artist whose bond with his disabled brother and his widowed mother led to intriguing visions evoking the pathos of time lost and the transcendence of time lived fully. Step right up folks. Step right up!
This show runs approximately two hours with one intermission.
