En Route Productions joyfully presents "Dead Man’s Cell Phone,” a dark-edged romantic comedy by Sarah Ruhl this January at Link and Pin Art Gallery (2235 E. 6th St. #102) and Springdale Station (979 Springdale Rd) for En Route's inaugural event, The Winter Modern, which places moving, theatrical art in gallery spaces throughout Austin. The Winter Modern is a beautiful combination of installation and theatrical art, which Ruhl’s intelligent, absurd, comedy lends itself to perfectly.

The Winter Modern opens January 7th and 8th at 8pm at the lovely, very intimate Link and Pin Art Gallery.  In this space, we will exhibit local artists, Sarah Presson, Nick Schnitzer, and Stephen Pruitt's visual art on the walls surrounding the intimate performance of "Dead Man's Cell Phone," by Sarah Ruhl.  The production will be minimal and every word tangible. This unique, intimate opportunity seats 25 guests.  There will be an artist talk (with visual artists and performance artists) and an Opening Reception on the 8th from 5-7 pm before the show.  On January 15th and 22nd, we will have two, intimate, MANHATTAN MATINEEs at 2 pm at Link and Pin as well, and the art will be hung in the space until the 23rd. Hot Steeping Room Tea, Live Oak Beer, and wine will be available for free during reception and for donation during the event.
From January 13th-15th, 19-22nd, and the 26th-29th at 8 pm, we will be exhibiting our dark, absurd theatrical installation at the lovely Springdale Station, which allows for a different, unique Austin experience.  The production design, created by Ia Enstera, Stephen Pruitt, Meason Wiley, Jason Farmer, Haley Powell, and Taylor Harrison will be the art installation in this old, train station, which seats 120 guests. There will be a donation bar with Hot Tea from The Steeping Room, Live Oak beer, and Whiskey, and plenty of parking.
Please join En Route at one or both of these unique spaces in Austin and get your ART on!
