In 1958, abstract painter Mark Rothko has just received an enormous commission to create a set of paintings for the fanciest, most expensive new restaurant in Manhattan. The assistant he hires to help him, however, has very different ideas about art.
Red is about what it takes to make art, what art even is, and the fear that all people have of leaving behind a legacy. Two actors, a record player, and some paintbrushes tell an intimate story that will leave you laughing, gasping, and thinking.
Red will be Counterweight’s debut at our new venue in the Cellar at Carter Payne, as part of the new ARTx performance collaboration.
