(A)loft Modulation

A red graphic with "(A)loft Modulation" in faded blocky text

September 26 - October 27, 2019
Official Opening Night: October 3, 2019

Written by Jaymes Jorsling
Directed by Christopher McElroen

It’s the last explosive heyday of jazz and the inhabitants of a seedy Manhattan loft jam night after night, while a compulsive photographer documents everything with round-the-clock reel-to-reel recordings and photographs. 

(A)loft Modulation traces the turbulent, roiling obsessions of this group of musicians - a who’s who of jazz from 1957 to 1965 - and their pursuit of purpose, while social chaos seeks to overthrow American culture. It’s angst vs. contentment, selfishness vs. benevolence, artist vs. layman – a struggle that plays out through the fractured lens of unlabeled reel-to-reel tapes which are stumbled upon 60-years after they were recorded.

Featuring a live jazz band that improvises nightly, (A)loft Modulation harnesses the power of these rare and precious sound and video recordings, taking the audience on a thrilling and emotional tour of this watershed moment in jazz history.

Directed & Adapted by Beth Ann Hopkins
Musical Composition & Direction by Elliot Roth

A young girl has run away to her Grandmother's attic, a space for forgotten objects covered with drop cloths and dusty time. When searching through a stack of old books, she opens one up to reveal that the words literally come alive off the pages as characters and creatures emerge around her and begin to tell her the story of King Lear. A classic story, retold through the eyes of a child.

Written by Chad Beckim

Clay and Jess have big dreams: college, refuge from the cold Maine winters, and a permanent escape from the paycheck-to-paycheck, rent-a-center furniture lifestyle of their parents. When Jess finds herself temporarily stuck behind and at odds with her stepfather, she moves in with Clay's mom and begrudgingly takes a job at the local chicken farm. Meanwhile Clay heads off to college, counting down the days to his return, desperate to avoid the destiny of his geography. NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY is love story for the opioid era.
