7 Stages Launches Home Brew @ Home
Starting in September, 7 Stages Theatre launched Home Brew @ Home, a programming that is the product of the theatre’s new work in development series. The programming offers virtual productions in the very early stages of creation as a first look or re-work, with one celebrating the world premiere as an original film.
The first film, Blood Flow, was written by Robert Earl Price and created by Atlanta-based filmmaker, Ashley James. The piece is a multimedia artwork that reflects the continuous role of art as a force of resistance to crimes against humanity in the past, present, and future.
“This process allowed me to combine two of my favorite things: devised theatre and filmmaking,” James told Oz. “I couldn’t have asked for a safer space in which to play.”
James is an independent film producer, director and avant garde theatre creator. Her hope is to investigate the ways film can offer a deep dive into the human psyche as a visually exploratory medium.
7 Stages Theatre has been bringing local and international emerging artwork of social, political, and spiritual importance to Atlanta audiences since 1979. Artists in performance music, visual and the spoken arts have found the organization a haven in the support and development of new works and methods of collaboration.
