Creative Point-On (Daniela Pavan & Tommaso Cartia, Founders) announce the launch of Boundless Theater (A Stage Without Borders), a theatrical installation series returning the spotlight to the underground scene of the performing arts by presenting exclusively curated, boutique performances from indie playwrights, actors, musicians, and dancers in unconventional spaces, starting from speakeasy-styled cabaret locations throughout New York City.
Boundless Theater will host a gala on Monday, March 21istth at LUXUNY Atelier of Luca Santonato at Bryant Park Studios. The evening will feature a taste of the Boundless Theater experience, including a teaser from the first installation with a performance by singer-songwriter Hadiza Dockeray and an excerpt from David James Parr’s anthology play Eleanor Rigby Is Waiting. The event will also feature Boundless Theater’s Ambassadors, including Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Jenn Colella; actor, writer, filmmaker and transgender activist Pooya Mohseni; and screen star Jacopo Rampini.
The inaugural installations from Boundless Theater will take place over the four Boundless Tuesdays in March 2022 at The Duplex (61 Christopher Street): April 19th / 26th & May 3rd / 10th 6:00 pm doors / 6:30 pm show. Each evening will begin with the Boundless Theater Manifesto and a musical act by international singer-songwriter Hadiza Dockeray and her band, followed by a performance from David James Parr’s anthology play Eleanor Rigby Is Waiting. Tickets, $25, are now available and can be purchased at BoundlessTheater.com.
Eleanor Rigby is Waiting (24 strangers. 24 hours. 1 chance to connect) by award-winning author David James Parr is a kaleidoscopic romantic comedy-drama consisting of a mosaic of interconnected vignettes, exploring different shades of human emotion. A boundless experience combined with an evocative live music performance by singer-songwriter Hadiza Dockeray invites the audience each night on a unique date with surprising characters and one chance to connect with an array of strangers, played by a group of versatile powerhouse actors in an interconnected portrait of love, lust, and longing in our modern world.
“It is with great pride that I’ve joined Boundless Theater as one of their ambassadors. When I was first told of their inclusive mission and goals, of supporting new works and new artists of every origin, race, and gender, it reminded me of why I entered the Industry in the first place, and why the role of an actor is important to give voice to all different kinds of narratives and artistic expression. Let’s break down borders, and engage with our communities to bring about these boundless opportunities,” said celebrity ambassador Jenn Colella.
“Boundless Theater invites the audience to go back to that communal, visceral, and magical rituality of live theater that can profoundly transform consciences. We are all reminded of the importance of this tradition now more than ever, after we’ve witnessed how dramatically the global pandemic impacted the performing arts as the curtains fell on stages all over the world almost indefinitely. Boundless Theater is an inclusive borderless stage where the spotlight is and should be on talent, welcoming artists of every race, nationality, gender identity, and age,” said co-founder, artistic director & producer Daniela Pavan.
“We envision our inaugural programming as a boundless and borderless experience, to immerse the audience in the Boundless Theater feeling. Each of the artists involved is a strong representation of our mission and values. From the play by David James Parr, which struck us by his existential exploration of humankind caught in a state of isolation; to the evocative and alluring music of Hadiza Dockeray; to our celebrity ambassadors – Jenn Colella, Pooya Mohseni, and Jacopo Rampini – who represent, in their diversified life and artistic experiences, a kaleidoscope of beautifully resilient individuals inviting us to think of an inclusive, boundless world, literally without borders,” added co-founder, artistic director & producer Tommaso Cartia.
