VENUS IN FUR, a hit of the 2012 Broadway season, has had a full and remarkable life in regional theatres around the country. Montana Rep is delighted to bring this work to Missoula audiences as part of our Visions and Voices program.
“A suspense-packed study of the erotics (and semiotics) of power … [that] provides a seriously smart and very funny stage seminar on the destabilizing nature of sexual desire: vanilla-flavored, kink-festooned or anything in between.”
— The New York Times
Visions and Voices
Visions and Voices invites members of the Missoula community to submit ideas for new productions. Prior Visions and Voices projects have been Leveling Up, presented at the Crystal Theatre, and Circle Mirror Transformation, presented at the Downtown Dance Collective.
Our goal is to investigate, read, workshop, and eventually produce new and challenging works for the stage that demonstrate evidence of vision and voice—works that are both unique and heartfelt. We intend to encourage local, regional, and national theatre artists to bring their visions to fruition in an atmosphere of generosity and collective creativity.
Visions and Voices is not solely concerned with content. We will also focus on establishing appropriate venues and performance times, determining production values needed for a particular experience, and exploring the relationship of the performer to the audience.
What is unique and essential in the live theatre experience?
In our increasingly isolated society, with screens large and small dominating our entertainment and cultural landscape, human interaction has become an increasingly valuable commodity. It is the mission of Visions and Voices to explore the possibilities of fulfilling this most vital of human needs.
