A new play from Rude Mechs, Austin’s internationally acclaimed experimental theatre company.
Not Every Mountain is in Fusebox Festival 2019, and if you can't make that, the Rudes are holding it over the week after.
Using a string, cardboard and magnets, Not Every Mountain invites you to watch the collective effort of making and unmaking a series of interlocking mountain ranges. Watch minutes, or perhaps centuries, unfold, as mountains rise and fall, clouds dance, birds alight and depart, and a moon delicately hangs overhead. Not Every Mountain is a joyous and poignant meditation on the fleetingness of time and the many lives of rocks, underscored by a poetic recitation–or perhaps a spiritual incantation.
Not Every Mountain is a mellow meditation on change, permanence and our place in the natural world. It is a presentation of the life cycle of mountains and the processes by which they are born and eventually laid to rest, an invocation of tectonic force and geologic time.View Map
