Reykjavík is a series of interconnected vignettes featuring charged interactions between tourists and the (sometimes supernatural) Icelandic locals. We eavesdrop on the private lives of lovers, hospitality workers, partygoers, and even a really handsome bird or two. Workshopped at the Kennedy Center for the Performing arts and produced by renowned theaters such as Rorschach Theater and Southern Repertory Theater, Reykjavík is a celebration and exploration of queer love, domestic horror, and both the excitement and banality of self-discovery. In Tongues, the Playhouse invites viewers to experience the tender blossoming of new love within the queer
domestic space of Family Room.
On Tongues, director Kent Kirkpatrick says the scene “reveals two men in a new romantic relationship as they share their most private and secret selves. It is a charming take on new love, but a sense of potential heartbreak is not far from the surface. In the first rushes of romance, it is somehow important to reveal the deeper, most private facts to the lover. These two men both reveal something they had never told another person before. The two lovers reveal their secrets and both come out as being ‘two people.’ But the question remains: will this be a long-term relationship?”
To ensure the safety of the gallery, the performers and the audience, Santa Fe Playhouse and form & concept are allowing four time slots each performance date wherein 6 guests can view Tongues, on April 16, 17, 23, and 24, between 12 and 2 pm. Due to this limited capacity, we encourage an early booking of this event.
