Date: November 7 – 9th, 2019
Venue: Rich Theater @ Woodruff Arts Center
NBAF will present, “Local Celebrity”, a 3 day stage play by Creative Director, DL Warfield, Artistic Director, Devyn Stephens, and Mixed Media Director, Christian Ruffin. This performance art piece is a hybrid traditional stage play, tone poem and musical and is a Cirque de Soleil inspired performance piece told from the point of view of a P.O.W. in Iraq. “Local Celebrity” breaks down America’s struggle with narcissism, social media overkill, and celebrity obsession while the real heroes are nameless, faceless soldiers who are dying overseas. Contemporary pop culture gets harsh scrutiny in this satirical social commentary that plays out in a series of monologues, poems, scenes, dance sequences, and musical interludes.
Tickets will go on sale September 2019.
