the Enchanted Forest

On October 31st 1998, director Barry Karp, actor and poet Rae Crossman and designer Jerrard Smith ended a two week intensive workshop with an amazing group of Brazilian students around the themes of the Theatre of Confluence and the Enchanted Forest. The workshop culminated with a showcase presentation of most of The Enchanted Forest, in a wooded park in Sao Paulo.

In April 2000, Barry, Jerrard and Diana returned to Brazil to meet with people in Rio de Janeiro and to further the work started in Sao Paulo.

We returned in July, and are now working toward mounting a complete production in April 2001 in the Tijuca Forest, Rio de Janeiro. Click here to preview preliminary designs for the Rio de Janeiro show.
