Free Will Ensemble

Born out of performances conducted through our *Artlab series; The Free Will Ensemble will serve as an atelier for the expansion of those experiments. The project will bring together a wide range of creative conjurers of different ethnicities and disciplines to construct highly stylized theatrical experiences.

Experiment 43 - 1017


A New Play by Terence E Jackson

October 6-29, 2017 at the Star Theatre in the historic West End

Six Actors, Two Separate Cast Perspectives,
One Extraordinary Evening of Theatre

Definition – (From the word Simulacrum) Plural:
Something slight, unreal, or superficial in likeness or semblance.

Simulacra centers around three siblings who revert to playing intellectual word games with each other in an attempt at masking their true feelings. But as the play unfolds, it becomes apparent that to rely solely on the fallibility of memory can be a tricky thing, especially when it is shaped by the siblings selfish needs and manipulative fictions.
