Welcome to the Circle Squared Collective
Associate Artistic Director, Whitney Tenney Pak, will be making her Central New York directing debut with a new work, Come Like Shadows, written by Gemma Cooper-Novack and produced by our friends at Breadcrumbs Production.
"As the Gold Rush brings thousands of new settlers to San Francisco, a secretive young woman begins to work at a high-end brothel in the burgeoning city. As she draws closer to her companions there, the past and present hungers of men--socially, politically, romantically--begin to cast a shadow upon the brothel. Come Like Shadows offers an alternate take on the history of Shakespeare's most infamous character, Lady Macbeth.
Artistic Director Ricky Pak continues into his fourth year as an Assistant Professor of Acting at Syracuse University where he brings his knowledge and background in Television and Film Acting, Improv, and Devised Theatre to the next generation of Performing Artists.
His research also includes the development and training in Motion/Performance Capture, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality performance technologies, while continuing to evolve Community-Engaged Theatre and Devising opportunities for his students.
Since our founding in 2013, a core tenant of our mission statement has been, "... to bring diverse voices to a new generation of audiences." We have always created work with and for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) theatre artists and audiences.
And yet we also acknowledge that there is still a lot of work to be done, especially now as we rebuild our own Circles in Los Angeles and Syracuse. Our mission will continue to be giving voice to those who have for too long been voiceless for those who have for too long been waiting to see their stories represented on stage and screen. Diversity and inclusion remain at the center of our beliefs.
We have not and will never hesitate to say
BLACK LIVES MATTER
as we continue to strive to be the best allies and advocates for all BIPOC theatre artists and audiences possible.
