Welcome to the fourth week of #TimeTravelTuesdays!
Last week was our tech week, and this week we have our OPENING performance! But before we get to Friday night (Opening night!) we have our last two rehearsals, last night and tonight, Parent/Sponsor Preview tomorrow evening, and then a school matinee showing Thursday morning.
This week we have Eric writing an explanation on what a Tesseract is, and how it is incorporated into the show!
A Wrinkle in Time is about wrinkles in time, and this short and easy comprehensible guide explains how travel time is presented in our show and also some insights on how we present it.
The picture to the left is a Tesseract. A Tesseract is the device in which characters time travel through in A Wrinkle in Time.
The fourth dimension is time, and a tesseract is the four-dimensional analogue of a cube.
In A Wrinkle in Time, the tesseract is thought to be a doorway that you can open and travel the space time continuum through.
Time Travel is presented in movement sequences choreographed by Sarah Diener. The movement sequences are featured in various places throughout the show. There are some cast members dedicated to Tesseract scenes. While the motion and action is happening the narrators underline the character’s thoughts about what is going on.
This week, we have interviews from two ladies who take Meg, Charles, and Calvin through their first tesseract, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit!
Come back next week for the final #TimeTravelTuesday!
As usual, tickets are available online, or by calling the Playhouse.
