DEBAUCHERS PRESS RELEASE LUCIANI’S ABSOLUTE THEATER PRESENTS “DEBAUCHERS: A CELEBRATION OF LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 28, 2017 NEW DEVISED SENSORY-SOMATIC PRODUCTION Press Contact: Guido Luciani gluciani@lucianiabsolutetheater.com

West Hollywood, CA (May 28, 2017) - Luciani’s Absolute Theater “DEBAUCHERS”, winner of City of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride Festival scholarship, makes its world premiere as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017. This devised sensory-somatic theater production will run, for five performances only, at The Actors Company (The Little Theater), 916 N. Formosa Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046, June 2nd - 24th.

“DEBAUCHERS” is a sensory-somatic theatrical exploration of art aroused by sexuality; a celebration of life without limits. An inspiring and uninhibited exhibition of portraits of real and fictional risk-taking-individuals who aroused by their lust for life, have transcended and lived their lives to their fullest by defying morality, good-and-evil, right-and-wrong or any other socially imposed limitations. The Bare Characters: The Muse, The Artist and The Murderer represent three different stages in the transcendence process of a creative mind, perhaps The Third; a narrator-like character who acts as a totem or link between the stage plane and the audience or collective plane. Unlike the Masks, which are theatrical fabrications the three actors assume and take on throughout the play, the Bare Characters are unmasked, exposing the actors playing them rather than concealing them. This production is devised through a collaborative process between the actors and director, and reflects their own process and struggles with limitations and labels related to gender, sexual orientation: gay, straight, bisexual, etc., predisposed concepts of love, relationships and imposed concepts of morality.

“DEBAUCHERS” is part of Luciani's Absolute Theater's Sensetorm and The Sensetorm Project, a multidisciplinary arts proposal in pursue of individual and collective enlightenment through the sensory-somatic awakening of the creative fire and the transcending and healing powers of art. Guido Luciani is the Artistic Director of both Luciani’s Absolute Theater and The Sensetorm Project and the deviser of the Absolute Theater Technique and the Luciani’s Resonance Technique for the performing arts.
