DaPoPo back with ‘living theatre’ festival

A small venue on Agricola Street will host a month-long theatre festival starting Sunday.

DaPoPo Theatre is set to present The Live-In, a relentless stream of play readings, performances and participatory workshops throughout October.

Workshops range in commitment from a one-night-only sweatfest (Physical Theater – Grotowski Inspired, Oct. 2) to a series of four sessions over brunch that look at songwriting (The Song is You, Oct. 6, 13, 20, 27). Creating puppets and using digital projections on stage are among the other subjects. Most sessions run at $10 a pop.

There’s also an ambitious schedule of performances and readings. The festival, now in its fourth year, opens Sept. 30 with a cabaret and closes Oct. 31 with a reading (Shadows on Oak Island) and party. It all takes place at the cozy Living Room space at 2353 Agricola Street. It’s a tiny venue, so reserve or register a spot in advance to avoid tears.
