Spotlight On: Alix Fenhagen

As SCT closes out our 8th season (whoa!) we’re highlighting some major players in our final Main Season production of the year: Blind From Here. 

Blind From Here is a world premiere indie-rock odyssey written by SCT Ensemble Member Alix Fenhagen. We asked her to tell us a bit about the play from her perspective. Here’s what she had to say:

“This play first began as a ten-minute piece.  I wrote it in a week to be performed in an abandoned warehouse on N 7th and Bedford in Brooklyn. A group of friends and I had found it unlocked and decided to wire it with electricity from across the street and make some theatre.  I was 23 and was drawn to the idea of someone choosing to be blind in order to gain control. Stepping out of the nest for the first time on what are supposed to be your grown-up legs can be overwhelming. If you are lucky, the options and opportunities seem infinite. Some people are liberated by this freedom; others are paralyzed.”

Flowing with Thoughts after Foot of Water

As artists we thrive off the ability to receive feedback and reactions to our work.  It makes the tremendous effort we put into our craft absolutely worthwhile.

That’s why we are including a post-show discussion after every performance of Foot of Water. Your questions, reactions, and comments will help Foot of Water continue to grow through the rest of the run and into the future. The production team wants to know what emotions and thoughts this production stirs up in your mind. This open dialogue with our community is how our design elements will grow stronger.  And as our design elements become stronger and more focused, I hope the shared experience of performer and audience becomes more and more enjoyable.

We’ve already had so many wonderful post-show discussions, and I’ve learned so much about this show, our work, and our ensemble from some of the great dialogue this piece has sparked.  I would love if you would join us for Foot of Water, and continue to be our guest into our future seasons.

Memberships and 6-Packs are already available for Season 6…  Just click here for details!
