Fortune: The Complete Works, is the final chapter in a season-long exploration into fortune in all its varied meanings, devices and kitschy incarnations. It features 3 original performances combined with a pre-show playground of audience-interactive weirdness.

Join Ragged Wing Ensemble for an evening of prophesy, oracle, divination, and innovative performance. Be prepared to put your heart on the line, converse with Lady Luck, and challenge fortune to a duel. If you play your cards right, you could win BIG.

“A Fool’s Errand” directed by core artist David Stein, tracks The Fool’s journey through Doubt, Shame and Desire.

“Atomic Intuition”, written and directed by core artist Cecilia Palmtag, is an archetypal quest designed to delight and disorient. Challenging the dichotomy of the material and psychic worlds, we ask “is the fabric of Mystery woven with electrons and protons?”

“Maybe Baby”, written and directed by Artistic Director Amy Sass, uses nursery rhyme, quantum theory and teapots to explore the relationship between choice, chance and children.

“No Outlet”, a short film by Matt Jacobs and Amy Sass follows one man’s attachment to being ‘The Winner’ and his addiction to ‘playing the game’.

REVIEWS

“This company is endlessly inventive and all their shows are generous: in spirit, in content, and in scope. The last piece of theirs I saw Fortune: The Complete Works left me amazed at their ability to do so much with such simple elements. They created an immersive experience. Bravo.” -Adam E.

“There is theatrical magic happening in the recesses of a new building on Center Street off Shattuck in Berkeley…It’s a serious foray into Commedia dell’Arte.”- John McMullen Examiner, Berkeley Daily Planet
