HEADSHOT! an INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE PROJECT

MB ADAPTORS is in the midst of an action-packed, international creation project that merges the company’s core ensemble with Catalan artists from LA CALBA Teatre, the Barcelona arts community and training artists from several major universities. The project is creatively constructed in phases to allow for the in-depth research and attention to detail the company is known for. To date HEADSHOT! has been developed and performed at different levels at the company’s studio in Highland Lake, NY, NACL Theatre, Millikin University, Viterbo University and in Barcelona. HEADSHOT! has grown and evolved through each of the project’s collaborative workshops.

Developing HEADSHOT! in this manner has allowed for the creative input of scores of artists and has given MB ADAPTORS the opportunity to go deeper into the playwriting, composing of original music, creation of multimedia imagery and detailed staging.

HEADSHOT! explores the human desire to be accepted and to win. The production takes place in a seemingly abandoned factory that is soon turned into an audition hall by the motley group of actors who mysteriously find themselves there. They have no idea what is expected of them but they are sure they are there for the break of a lifetime and that the competition is stiff. The pressure of having no clear leader, direction or exit brings about some strange yet oddly familiar behaviors. HEADSHOT! is in the end, an audition for the unknown — a role we are all familiar with.
