Three Headed Festival
three weekends, three solo performances, three curators
October 26- November 11, 2017
Curated by co-producing artistic directors Florinda Bryant, Diana Lynn Small, and Jenny Larson. Salvage Vanguard announces The Three-Headed Festival of New Plays, including three weekends of solo performances that examine the fears and beasts ruling U.S. American life. Where do these pressures come from? What can be sourced to inspire monsters of hope, justice and reconciliation?
This September SVT’s Florinda Bryant and Austin playwright Diana Lynn Small will join Jenny Larson at the helm of Salvage Vanguard Theater as Co-Producing Artistic Directors. Florinda Bryant, an actress, producer, and playwright, is an SVT company member and staff member. She has been an activist and artist in Austin for the past 20 years working with Rude Mechs, Teatro Vivo and many more. Diana Lynn Small, a playwright, actress, and producer, has an MFA from the Michener Center at UT Austin. Her piece Mad and A Goat performed in rep with SVT’s Guest by Courtesy in Brooklyn in July 2016 and her piece Hot Belly premiered locally with the company Paper Chairs this past fall. Larson, Small and Bryant will collectively guide the vision of the organization.
