Hiya! I'm Tia, proud original AOTH company member and creator or co-creator of Out of the Box, Under the Canopy, Space-Bop, and now, Outside the Lines! (I clearly like to be inside and outside of things. And also...in space....)
I was asked to share some of my Outside the Lines inspiration. This piece began like most of mine do, with a few tiny ideas. Michelle Kozlak approached me about writing a piece that would involve projections, tango music, and a celebration of bodies and lines. For those of you who know/remember Odyssey of the Mind, this puzzle delighted me and brought me back to 6th grade geekery;).
Here are some of the first images I collected. I tend to work off images first:
"Outside the Lines" had an exciting first workshop last month, and will premiere spring of next year with another of our favorite collaborators, "Point A to Point B"'s Megan Alrutz, directing! We can't wait to see what this piece becomes with the cumulative imaginations of our creator, director, actors, musicians, designers...and littles.
