Scratch Night is a multidisciplinary salon of works-in-progress from Kansas City’s most exciting generative performing artists. Help shape what’s new and what’s next on Kansas City’s stages by participating in our unique audience feedback framework.
March’s lineup includes a returning “2.0” presentation from choreographers Alexis Borth and Oscar Trujillo, and a new composition from Nan Turner.
Sequins before noon by Nan Turner
Part rock concert, part musical theatre, all ‘90’s figure skating. Featuring Tonya Harding, Nancy Kerrigan, Oksana Baiul, their mothers, and some celebrity guests like Scott Hamilton and Courtney Love, this piece explores existentialism, friendship, murder, and your relationship with your mother.
Disintegration by Alexis Borth and Oscar Trujillo
An expansion of an immersive movement performance presented at Scratch Night in Spring 2023, Disintegration explores what happens when our state of preparedness dissolves. Does something show up to replace it? What is lost or gained? Will our relationships shift? And what new choices arise when our readiness disintegrates?
