Savage Umbrella and the artist 'Rapture'
This weekend, Savage Umbrella offers its take on the end of times with Rapture, two workshop readings presented Interact Center for Visual and Performing Arts. But instead of true Christians ascending into the heavens to join Christ in everlasting life, Savage Umbrella's version envisions true artists as the population that ends up mysteriously disappearing from Earth. Rapture explores what happens to the artists who were left behind.
Bolan says working with such a large team of writers was really rewarding, though it took a while for everyone to get on the same page in terms of who the characters were and what they sounded like. The initial workshop readings helped the writers hear the work out loud, and identify where there were inconsistencies.
