A NEW COMEDY INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS BY JONATHAN KRAVETZ

DANIEL J. WATTS

IN A SERIES OF FILMS BY VONGSAWAT

WORKS BY POET & PERFORMER

Wild Root Co is proud to present a monthly series of short films featuring the works of visionary poet and performer Daniel J. Watts, who most recently starred in the 2014 Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical After Midnight. Watts' one-man slam experience The Jam: Spoken Word Preserves has played to sold out audiences at Canal Room, Clark Studio Theatre at Lincoln Center and the Helen Hayes Spotlight Theatre, and Watts' work "I Can't Breathe," a response to the death of Eric Garner presented in a Times Square flash mob, went viral in July 2014.  

 

Captured on the Red EPIC by celebrated cinematographer Vongsawat, who has has received global attention for his recent work for Atlantic Records and Harpers Bazaar, Wild Root's latest project aims to showcase the insightful, socially conscious and force-of-nature poetry of a luminous storyteller on the rise in a series of visually arresting films.

 

Watch a teaser for the series, coming in 2015, above.

WILD ROOT FIRST LOOK  

The Room at the End of the Hall journey continued JAN 15 -18 2015 at Arena Stage's Kogod Cradle Series, part of Arena Stage's American Voices New Play Institute which is focused on the development of new and emerging work by artists from throughout Greater Washington and around the country.

 

"I am ecstatic that we have the opportunity to share our resources with these extraordinary artists," said Director of Artistic Programming Robert Barry Fleming. "Their work is sure to inspire audiences who share my enthusiasm for the inventive work traditionally associated with the Kogod Cradle Series, an initiative dedicated to the process of inquiry that is essential to the development of innovative new work."

 

This interactive workshop event invited you into experience of play building as we transported them to the shore of a lake house on Cape Cod for a gripping journey through the haunted past of estranged brothers Doug and Malky.
