Brave Umbrella Productions, a new theatre company,
presents the new, original work, To Own A Dali by David Gallagher and Juliet Rutter. If you love a piece of artwork, you purchase it and care for it in your home - but can you truly own it? Or does each person's unique interpretation of art make ownership an illusion? Can the same be said for a relationship? To Own A Dali revolves around 5
characters as they explore different types of romantic relationships–with no judgement towards someone
being polyamorous, monogamous, or single.
To Own A Dali was written to address how the traditional idea of a relationship is changing
rapidly. Ultimately, the show strives to promote acceptance for any type of relationship–with the
characters respecting and embracing each other's personal choices.
Playwrights David Gallagher and Juliet Rutter utilize symbolic conversation to explore themes of romance and communication, which are juxtaposed by choreographed movement pieces by Aaron Carter.
cast features Sam Bridgnell, Aimee Hamilton, Courtney Roberts,
Juliet Rutter, and Becca Blanchard.
To Own A Dali features music solely from local
artists, including such as Rainwalkers, Tyler Morin, Cullen Vance, and more.
Performances are October 19, 20, and 21 at 7:30 PM at the Oregon Contemporary Theatre’s
studio space: 194 W Broadway; Eugene, OR 97401.
Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at octheatre.org and at the Oregon Contemporary Box
office, in advance or at the door. The OCT box office can be reached at (541) 465-1506.
