NEW MEXICO TOUR
After a prolonged period of soul-searching and reinvention, through the pandemic and beyond, Agile Rascal is back on tour again! This time with a brand new crop of talented artists, and a new way of doing things. Our old model of spending five weeks in residence to collectively devise a play, followed by six weeks on tour, just wasn't feasible for the schedules of our working artist collaborators.
So we scrapped the whole devising model, and instead sought out a script from a new, talented playwright, eventually stumbling upon Anooj Bhandari, and his beautiful play, Chai Chai. We also cut our tour down to two weeks, making the entire project a month-long endeavor, something much more manageable for our artists to fit into their schedules. We are so excited to be getting back out on the road!

THE PLAY: CHAI CHAI BY ANOOJ BHANDARI
At the intersection of "this way" and "that way," a Giant sits at a Chai Stall, a Matchmaker wonders if she is losing her touch, and a very quiet character suddenly has a lot to say.
Guided by a mythical chorus of fly elders, Chai Chai is a play about remembrance, memory, and what happens when we begin to forget.
