ARTS GARAGE in Delray Beach Presents Thought-Provoking BUNKER on Oct 24
A Timely and Thought-Provoking One Act Play
Saturday, October 24 at 7 pm
Tickets are Available for Both Live & Live-Streamed Performance
(Delray Beach, FL – September 29, 2020) Just as Arts Garage brought back live musical performance to Delray Beach with Music At Home: Live From Arts Garage, the venue is now launching Theatre Live From Arts Garage with a live and simultaneously live-streamed performance of BUNKER, a one act play written by Sharonda Eccentrich Richardson, directed by Jonathan David Kelly, and starring Shanteala Mash. The timely and thought-provoking production will have one performance on Saturday, October 24, at 7 pm.
"As an artist, I am committed to creating work that speaks to the underserved communities I come from," says director Kelly. "Not only do I use the arts as a way to spark dialogue for social change, but also as an instrument for healing. Before I create new work, I make sure to engage with community members through focus groups and open forum discussions, so that I have an accurate depiction of their individual social issues."
Accordingly, immediately following the live/live-streamed performance of BUNKER at Arts Garage, the talented trio behind the production will have an open discussion on the condition of the African American Community as it relates "to raising black men in an effort to open dialogue, create solutions, and bring back the village."
"BUNKER explores an important concern facing many families today," says Marjorie Waldo, the venue's President & CEO. "Arts Garage celebrates community and believes that the Arts can be truly transformative by starting conversations and bringing people together. This amazing play is a perfect opportunity to do exactly that, whether you decide to watch it live-streamed from your home or with us live in Delray Beach. "
The Live Theatre Experience at Arts Garage
For the in-person audience, Arts Garage is selling tables of 2, 4 and 6 that will be placed six feet apart. Concessions will be served table-side or chair-side, and—to reduce crowded common spaces—there will be no intermission.
Additional health and safety precautions have been implemented. For example, all Arts Garage staff and volunteers have been trained on safety and sanitation practices by management, with mandatory temperature checks at the start of each shift. Face masks are required.
