Artist Spotlight: "The Apothetae" with Gregg Mozgala
On this episode of Artist Spotlight, Chris sits down with The Apothetae's Artistic Director, Gregg Mozgala, to talk about his work as an actor, collaborating with choreographer Tamar Rogoff on the dance piece Enter the Faun, and battling against the three pervasive narratives of that define most mainstream stories that depict the Disabled Experience: overcoming obstacles, being an inspiration, and death with dignity.
They also talk about the new play On Every Link a Heart Does Dangle; or Owed, which playwright Tim J. Lord developed through his residency as the inaugural recipient of The Apothetae and Lark Playwriting Fellowship. And one of the reasons they talked about it is because it's happening! Here! At The Lark. It's a radical retelling of the Oedipus myth (in which Oedipus doesn't appear), and it's starting tomorrow. And it's free. RSVP!
