Please join us Nov.14-18 at The Clouet Gardens, 710 Clouet in the Bywater, at 4pm each day for “A Lovely Picnic, or almost serious, totally magical, rose-colored teatime” at the New Orleans Fringe Festival.
After selling out houses with “domestic variations” at last year’s Fringe, ticktock artistic director Liza Rose is excited to return to New Orleans to present this charming half-hour site-specific contemporary physical exploration. Backed by two musicians and a tree with a swing, Ms. Rose delicately investigates the challenges of self-sufficiency, the revelations of simplicity, and the small joys of solitude that surface while preparing a picnic in the garden. With a generous helping of aerial antics and gorgeous dancing, a side of spontaneous singing, and a whimsical rococo ambience, this playful ritual makes the mundane into magnificent in true ticktock style. Matthew Echert of The SunBreak says to watch Liza perform is to witness “An incredible display of agility, strength, and grace.”
We are beyond excited to bring this piece to what is quite possibly the most magical city on earth. Come join us in the garden! A Lovely Picnic waits.
