Stalking Christopher Walken - A comic jaunt into the mind of renowned actor and cultural phenomenon Christopher Walken.
Have you ever wondered what, exactly, is going on in Chris' head? This dance theatre dream sheds light on the dark corners of his psyche… and reveals what really happened to Natalie Wood.
We're looking for your financial support in order to develop this piece for presentation in the San Francisco Fringe festival. The money we raise will be used to pay for our rehearsal space, as well as for costumes, properties, and other materials used in the production. This funding will afford us the resources to fully bring the visual and kinetic world of Chris' dreams to life.
Stalking Christopher Walken is a dance theatre dream that takes place inside Chris' mind. It is based on the idea that this horrible event which happened 30 years ago, Natalie's drowning, has been haunting Chris since then.
This project is the first from our new company BrickaBrack, a group of artists focused on the development of original, multidisciplinary theatre. The company is headed by Bay Area artist Gabriel Grilli, a writer/director/performer with over 20 years of experience in theatre around the country and internationally. We are excited to be collaborating with an amazing group: performers Gabby Battista, Sonia Decker, Alex Lydon, Jonathan Suguitan, Katie Tandy and Shay Wisniewski, choreographers Hector Zavala & Katie Wong, lighting & scenic designer Jon Lowe, costume designer Antonia Gunnerson, sound designer Hannah Birch Carl, and puppet artist Elizabeth Fazzio.
We can't wait to bring this story of Chris' dreams and the mystery of Natalie Wood to audiences in the Bay Area and we hope to fund this production with your financial support. Our plan is that once the project is completed, we can tour the piece around the country for audiences in other locales.
A donation from you in any amount will help us realize our vision for the piece, giving us the finances to develop it fully and pay for many of the artists' contributions. Thank you for reading, and we hope you can come see our show in the Fringe Festival this September!
