In 1936, producer David O. Selznick began a 2 year search to find an unknown to play Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind. The fully scripted creation unfolds in 10 moments incorporating stylized movement, dance, song, original text, several suitcases, and the great Scarlett dress. All accompanied by live percussion.
John Wuchte is bringing his Tribal style of performance in the creation of this piece. John incorporates live percussion in his work to underscore and enhance the movement, and give a heartbeat and rhythm to the text. He developed this method while working with RAKKA-THAMM!!! Theater in NYC during the 1990’s. He was noted for creating original adaptations of Greek tragedies which performed each summer outside in Washington Square Park.
He is long time member of the award-winning Sacred Fools Theater company in Los Angeles. His production of Claire Z. (based on The Visit) received an L.A. Weekly nomination for best original adaptation. “…brash, fearless and playfully unconventional…inventively stylish fun!”
