  2. Sundown’s next production, Insatiable Infatuation with Violence, is coming up in just a few weeks!

    Combining music, video, movement, and live theatre, this production explores America’s thrill for violence.

    SYNOPSIS
    A group of strangers are trapped by an unseen force. As they try to understand why they have been captured, past flaws, faults, and fears come to light. Utilizing music, dance, and original text, “done/undone” explores how our actions can create consequences that cannot be undone. This show contains adult language and situations.

  10. Sundown Collaborative Theatre turned 4 Tumblr years old today!

    I clicked on “random post” a few times to get some of our Tumblr highlights, and here’s what I got:

    * Contact — a rehearsal photo from the 7

    * Happy Birthday to Sam Shepard!

    * Foul is Fair — reminder about Macbeth performances

    * Trailer for pool (no water) released on World Theatre Day

    It’s been a great 4 years! Here’s to the next year on Tumblr!
