The Fortune Project Chapter 1: A FOOL’S ERRAND,created by the Ensemble and directed by Ragged Wing core artist David Stein, is an experiential journey into the nature of doubt, shame, and desire. Using mask performance, circus arts, live music, and site specific performances, the ensemble creates a unique experience for the audience throughout a historic Julia Morgan-designed building in the heart of Oakland’s downtown.

Please wear comfortable shoes. The audience will follow the actors throughout the building. The show runs approximately 75 minutes with no intermission.

Ragged Wing Ensemble opens 2012 with a series of interactive performance events exploring the theme of Fortune.

We investigate how the universe speaks to us through our daily interactions: road signs, dreams, messages and images that find us when we most need them or warn us from going down the wrong path.

How can we take responsibility for our own destiny, while also accepting the cards we are dealt?

Each of the four chapters explores an aspect of this question from a different perspective. This 6 month project will culminate in an evening of pieces in late May directed by various ensemble members.
