Lost Voices Review by Ran Xia

 

"In their very simple yet effective ways, both plays show the beauty of quiet resilience and the strength of human bonds. To deny the connections between various, seemingly different groups of people leads to hatred and pain. To recognize it, which the playwrights and the director of Lost Voices have made easier, brings strength to people who are willing to stand together even in the most difficult of times."

The Village Voice by Nicole Serratore

 

"Launched in 2012, the Eagle Project looks to give Native American stories a place on the stage; the company develops works by Native American playwrights and produces pieces centering around other underrepresented voices. This month, they are presenting the premiere of two short plays under the banner "Lost Voices." These one-acts take a look at marginalized communities that have suffered as a result of Hurricane Katrina and climate change." [Read More]

Review: Lost Voices: “Wide Blossoms” & “Vanishing Point”

 

"All of the acting is stellar and both casts support each other's characters seamlessly, in a way that makes the audience feel like they have walked in to the bar or into the disappearing community. One easily forgets that they are attending theatre and that they are not, indeed, alongside these well-written characters as they face climate change, a situation that actually affects every last one of us.

Lost Voices demonstrates and educates the audience that we must not lose sight of the fact that it's not "save the planet", it's "save the people." The planet will be here. Whether or not people can survive on it depends on how much attention we all collectively pay." [Read the full review]

Visible Soul Interviews Actor
Kayla Jackmon of LOST VOICES

 

Kayla Jackmon plays Mari in "Wide Blossoms" by Elise Marenson

 

Q: Tell me about LOST VOICES. How do you feel the show is going? What do you love most about the play?

 

A: This show is cathartic and brilliant in so many ways. To give voice to so many who have died and suffered loss from Hurricane Katrina feels like I am able to do something, however small, in a world and tenor in our society at present in which the powerless are silenced. With that said, the play I am in, Wide Blossoms, is brilliantly written and I am having fun playing with two other talented actors. [Read the full interview]

Q: Tell me about LOST VOICES. How do you feel the show is going? What do you love most about the play?

 

A: I hate that question: "how's the show going?" I think as an actor it's very important to work for the process and try to let go of results. All you can do is connect to the the circumstances, know what it is you're trying to do onstage, and just shut up and listen to what's going on around you. That's it. Really listen. Really answer. Really respond. If you do that you never really know how it's going. And that's how I like it.

 

The thing I love most about Lost Voices is that I think these pieces are extremely relevant in today's political climate. Especially in wake of the upcoming election and issues pertaining to both the African American communities and the Native American communities.

Visible Soul Interviews Actress Abbi Hawk of LOST VOICES

 

Abbi Hawk plays Female Cousin in "Vanishing Point" by Larissa FastHorse

 

Q: Tell me about LOST VOICES. How do you feel the show is going? What do you love most about the play?

 

A: Lost Voices is an important piece of poetry and a discussion of remembering and forgetting. We are examining how we often remember those who struggle when it's convenient, politically relevant, or unavoidable, but how we also forget those people with a disturbing amount of ease and perhaps even willingness. It's been going quite well so far and I've been relishing all of the little moments of connection we are finding night after night. It's hard to pick a favorite part, but I will say that I love diving into the very specific landscape we've created and watching the journey unfold between the two cousins. Also grandma's stories. They are something magical. [Read the full interview]

Interview: Playwright Larissa FastHorse on Climate Change and Her New Play “Vanishing Point”

 

Larissa FastHorse started out as "the only ballet dancer [she] knew in the middle of the prairie," but is now a playwright whose works are produced all over the United States and beyond. As an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, and Sicangu Tribal Nation, FastHorse puts her own Native American experience to her works. She also, with Grammy-winning artist Ty Defoe, is co-owner of Indigenous Direction, a consulting firm for companies and artists who want to create accurate work about, for and with Indigenous Peoples.

 

We spoke about FastHorse's multifaceted journey in the arts and Vanishing Point, her play about a tribe losing their land due to rising waters, which opened in New York City just a day after 141 protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline were arrested in North Dakota. The play is part of Lost Voices: An Evening of Two Short Plays, presented by the Eagle Project.
