The Music You Remember
In 2003, actor/writer Jerry Perna began assembling ideas and images, drawn from his childhood cultural memory of the 1960’s. The resulting project, entitled, SEVEN MEN FROM NOW, was produced by Philadelphia’s Intrepid Theatre Company in 2005, at The Shubin Theatre, The Rotunda and The Walnut Street Studio 3.
In 2007, the New Century Television Network, taped a live webcast at The Rotunda. Through rewrites, residencies, a seemingly endless number of creative epiphanies and in-again/out-again collaborations, it’s a journey Perna describes as ‘creative process addiction’; continuing to labor over a project..long after most people noticed, or cared.
What happens when life itself is the creative process; the creative process is you…and it’s not something you can let go of so easily. The result of this creative tumult is THE MUSIC YOU REMEMBER. A one-person multi-sensory account of, not only material from SEVEN MEN FROM NOW, but the nature of the creative process itself, involving personal accounts of cultural, gender & ethnic identity.
An open rehearsal takes place on March 30th, at 7:30 pm, with open developmental performances on April 2nd at 4pm; April 3rd at 4:30pm; April 7th at 7:30pm, and April 10th at 5pm.
