In the Spring of 2016, Cosmic Orchid produced the inaugural cycle of its signature production, The Voire Dire Project. It was an integrative project where four theatrical teams each developed a one-act play inspired by a separate work of visual art (all paintings). This production, The Voire Dire Project 1.5, is a reincarnation of those plays, revised and developed - casting actors in different roles, and integrating the creative teams of each play. In addition to the performances, the Dream Up Festival will include a full curation of the artist’s work in the gallery outside the theatre where the plays are performed. Backdrop: Voir Dire, a legal term loosely defined as ‘objectively accurate and subjectively honest’, is rooted in the Ancient French: ‘to see, to speak (the truth)’. It is this meaning that inspires a magnificent tapestry of image and story. Integrative Theatre is theatre inspired by, and integrated with, art and contemporary culture. In this production, the inspiration continues a metamorphosis of the performance, and a new vision of the project - a moving audience experience of four one act-plays, and four paintings.
