Positive press for Moment of Impact!

We are having a great run at the Berkshire Fringe Festival in Great Barrington MA. We have one more show, tonight (Sunday July 28) at 6 pm. Well worth coming to see it if you are able to!

A review appearing at the website DIDYOUWEEKEND? had some very nice things to say about Moment of Impact:

“Lastly, we saw Moment of Impact, featuring a one woman dynamo by the name of Bronwyn Sims. The show took center stage for brilliant use of lighting and music, and a simple ladder prop that doubled as train tracks. It consisted of a partly read monologue by reading the actual transcripts of a train conductor who just ran over a suicide victim. “The ones killing themselves always look at you,” he wrote. “They want to see it happen.” Ms. Sims lead a brilliant performance, marked with style and grace, in this genre of suicide by train.”

Here is the whole reveiw: http://www.didyouweekend.com/evening-fringe-father-time-funerals-full-frontal/

Thoughts about Moment of Impact

It is has been a wonderful and wild time working on my new solo show.

Working as an artist and creating something from almost nothing is a daunting, exciting, frustrating self awakening….but most of all a beautiful journey.

This is the 2nd incarantaion of the show.. It was entitled Lean Back but we have changed the name  to Moment of Impact.

This piece is a very personal journey of self , life and death, what impacts us and how resilent and amazing the human spirit is. I’m entering another phase of the work; delighted and excited to see where I emerge this time from the forest.

I have a new Director Marla Truini an experienced performer and Director from Connecticut. She is the Theatre Director at The Westover School, a private school for girls in Middlebury, CT.

Marla has a wonderful and gentle way of helping me sort through my artistic ideas. She is very generous in her guidance as a director, prompting me in the right ways with subtle ideas and suggestions. She has encouraged me to use my own writing for the show and has helped me to understand that my individuality and personal stories are interesting and my ability to be open and vulnerable is most exciting to watch.

She has a firm but gentle hand on the material and in guiding me through it!

—Bronwyn

 

 

Measure For Measure at Westover School

One of the great things about teaching artist residencies is the opportunity to see what students create in class. The young women (as well as a few courageous young men lending their talents to the production) have jumped into physical exercises designed to help them realize the full expressive potential of movement, gesture, and stillness. As an ensemble, we are discovering how to play with buoyancy and confidence. Since most of the work is highly physical, a number of students are also fulfilling athletic curriculum requirements; an innovative approach to bridging the sports and arts divide which could serve as a model for schools facing budget issues! In the coming sessions, we will increasingly focus exercises around Measure For Measure, coaxing living, breathing, alive characters off the page and onto the stage! Stay tuned…
