Electric Eye Ensemble’s first production, Home in Motion: A Road Trip Play, was produced at WOW Cafe Theatre in December. I couldn't be prouder of the incredible work that went into this show. Here’s what I wrote for my director’s note in the program:
“Home in Motion is a performance bigger than the actors you are going to see on the stage tonight. It is about the community that we have created around the newly founded Electric Eye Ensemble. It is about our mothers and grandmothers, and their stories. It is about the question, ‘What is the narrative of women on the road?’ All of these factors inspire and propel tonight's production.
When we began work on this show, we committed ourselves to investigating and playing in the world of the road trip. This production of Home in Motion is the second evolution of this story, with more iterations on the horizon. Set in 1972, we follow three young women on a road trip to Santa Barbara, facing issues of the times and with each other, head on. We're so glad that you are here with us tonight. By seeing the show, you too have become part of the creation process- helping us to explore and express women's place on the road in a new way.”
Thank you to everyone who attended, donated or volunteered their time to help make the production possible! We can’t wait to jump in on the third leg of this journey and see where the story takes us next.
