Bare Portland (Portland, ME)

A desperate woman is confined by her husband to a room covered in dingy yellow wallpaper. Bare Portland collages the wallpaper’s vicious influence through movement, song, and words. Our shadows become our mirrors in this other-worldly adaptation of the classic short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

Bare Portland (Portland, ME) believes stories don’t happen in a vacuum. We are focused on community building through site-specific creative projects and partnerships with diverse organizations.

This show is part of an exciting PortFringe “double feature” event, which means you will see two short performances in the same one-hour performance slot. The Yellow Wallpaper is paired with from the rib vault in the room that has become mary .

More from the Artist!
Why did you choose PortFringe this year? What did you do to prepare for this production? 
“We love Fringe, are enthusiastic supporters. We thought that a double-bill could be a great opportunity to generate material with an audience for a full production we’re doing later… Our collaboration with New Fruit is a new way to look at the hallowed Fringe “Double-Bill.” We’ve been working with New Fruit to create a simultaneous performance experience… creating separately and coming together to check in, inspire each other and see what we’ve created… During the show part of what the audience will be experiencing is an immersive and collaborative performance experiment and working with us to devise and generate new creative material. Or, if they want, just take it all in.

Is there another PortFringe show you’re excited to see?
I am excited to see 20×20: An Improvised PechaKucha, DEEP AS HELL, Kill That Man, Come Back Alone, I Was a Sixth Grade Bigfoot and SO MANY MORE.
