David Davila will continue work on his play ANIMAL HUSBANDRY this summer when he heads to Maine as an artist in residence at Barn Arts’ 2016 Hamilton Project. ANIMAL HUSBANDRY is a new play that examines and deconstructs the construction and destruction of a gay couple’s relationship from courting to final breakup, with all of the temper tantrums, shattered wine glasses, mini-break-ups, and hot sex in-between. The play is told out of order, through a series of bedroom vignettes that hope to penetrate something deeper. The play has been developed this year through The PlayGround Experiment in Manhattan.
The Hamilton Project strives to designed to build creative opportunities between passionate people in a beautiful place. Artists from all over the country come to develop new works of performance in a pastoral and supportive environment. Teams of artists live, work, eat and plan together, creating a temporary creative community and supporting one another in their individual and collective goals.
Davila will be joined by Mia Anderson, Stephanie Beattie, Sergei Burbank, Cat Crowley, Sean Daniels, Taylor Edelhart, Lizzie Fox, Oliver Jane, Claire Keichel, Alex Randup, Kyra Sims, and Sarah Todes
