VIDEO: Watch to learn more about what inspired J. Chachula to direct Curious Accidents & Unintended Consequences
The Flying Machine Theatre Co. returns from an eleven-year hiatus with its first piece of completely improvised theatre. Six actors—four adults and two high school seniors—will take the stage without the slightest idea of what is going to happen.
The concept for Curious Accidents & Unintended Consequences came from Director J. Chachula's own curiosity about what would happen if you merged an actors's willingness to be vulnerable, to be serious, to take on difficult subject matter and added the moment-to-moment flexibility of improv.
"There was a world of improvisors and a world of actors, and they seldom got together. And it was a shame because they each, I thought, had something to teach each other. And I kind of had a foot in both worlds," he says.
Curious Accidents & Unintended Consequences is a rare blend of these two worlds. There are six shows scheduled, each one will be different.
"This really is an experiment. I haven’t the slightest idea what’s going to happen," says Chachula.
We hope you'll join us for Curious Accidents & Unintended Consequences.
You've never seen it before. And you'll never see it again.
