Tiny Mayhem is a contemporary performance series produced in partnership with NHTP Company Artist Emily Karel. Originally produced at the Red Door, in Portsmouth NH in the summer of 2015, the events are an eclectic assortment of theatre, dance, music and drinks curated to create a one-of-a-kind night.
As well as being a night for audiences to experience something a little different, Tiny Mayhem helps makers in all disciplines, find collaborators and space to explore new performative work. February's line-up will be announced after January 1.
December's line-up included:
NUT FREE: a short play by Amy Desrosiers with Katie Juster, Brett Reis & Kathleen Somssich
HARD TIMES: dance film by Anthony Bounphakhom & Sarah Duclos
HARD LESSONS: a short play by Adam LaFramboise with Katie Gall
TIME IS NOT: animation by Sam Paolini with Sylvea Suydam & Andrew Paolini
THE NOSE: a monologue by Stephanie Lazenby
GRAVITY OF NOW: poetry by Mike Nelson with animation by Catherine Stewart
IF UP’S THE WORD: music by Jonny Peiffer, Zach Lange, and Mike Effenberger, words by e.e.cummings.
And special guest host Michael Towle as Clive Tenderly. You may remember Michael as Sir Guy in SHERWOOD: The Adventures of Robin Hood during our 2019 - 2020 MainStage Season.
