Artist's Statement

“My work addresses the future, fragility of the human presence, perseverance of nature and underlying threads of danger woven through societies. There is a deep relationship between art and science. The more we learn about our surroundings, where we came from and who we are, the more likely we will thrive in a universe of endless possibilities.”

The Edge Gallery is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and during Edge events. Admission is free and all are welcome!

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Presented by the EdgeWild Players
June 21–23, 7:00 p.m. & June 24, 2:00 p.m.

 

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, written by Bertolt Brecht in 1941, is a satirical look at a small-time thug who, with his henchmen, comes from New York to Chicago to take over the Cauliflower business by offering, for a price, “protection” to small groceries.

It is an allegory of Hitler’s rise to power, with characters and events having a direct parallel. It isn’t what you might expect of a 1930s Chicago gangster play. This is done for laughs, with over-the-top vaudeville acting, singing, dancing, and stage antics that keep it moving at a frantic, funny pace.
 

Directed by Patricia Feld and starring (in alphabetical order): Krini Alampi, Greg Anselmo, Nathan Bergstedt, Tom Boland, Bryan Boone, Greta Drewlow, Laura Gillman, Kristi Gustafson, John Hanson, Audrey Johnson, Abe Klamm, Dakota Klamm, Jack Nachbar, Mike Raymond, Megan Reedstrom, Victor Romanick, Aaron Saude, and Archie Wass.


For Mature Audiences.* (see note below)

Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students.
Tickets available at the Gift Nest, the Timber Rose, online, and at the door.

Thanks to Arvig and JK Mechanical for helping underwrite this performance.

This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature's general and arts and cultural heritage funds.


*On Stage Content for The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Rating systems and recommendations can sometimes be difficult to understand. Different people feel differently about the definitions of “adult language” and “adult situations.” In an effort to make things clear and enjoyable for all of our patrons, we have instituted a new rating system.

Many of you have asked why we don’t use the rating systems of R or PG-13. Unfortunately, that rating system was copyrighted by the MPAA, and we are not allowed to use it. Many have also asked why we do not cut offensive language or situations out of the script altogether. When we select a script and enter into a licensing agreement, we are also agreeing to produce the script exactly as written. We are not allowed to alter the playwright’s script.

We hope that our new rating system will help you make informed decisions about the productions that you want to see. The guidelines we offer are subjective and may not reflect individual sensitivities. To address specific concerns, please contact the Ticket Office directly at 218-743-6670 or admin@edgecenterarts.org.
