Nourishment (Why Believe?)

We are excited to announce our latest Nourishment, based on the question: Why Believe? From February 8-10th, 2019, Why Believe will premiere in Lakewood, Colorado.

Why Believe? Delves into a myriad of questions and feelings surrounding religion, afterlife, spirit, and soul. In today’s world as well as other times in our history, it can seem as though belief falls into camps and divides us more than brings us together.

As a cast, we will be exploring what it means to believe in something, what it feels like to lose faith, and if it the act of believing even matters at all. Building on our mission to create experiential performances, this production will immerse the audience into the show in new ways and will nourish all of the audience's sense of taste with beverages and small bites.

Different from previous Nourishment productions, Why Believe will have a smaller cast, shorter run time, and more affordable ticket pricing.

Tickets on Sale Now!

$45 for General Admission (includes 2 beverages and 3 small bites)

Following two sold-out runs of Nourishment in Denver, CO in 2016 and Brooklyn, NY in 2017, Gwendolyn&Guests is pleased to announce their return to Denver with a premiere of their latest Nourishment production, centered around the question: what does it feel like to grow up? Nourishment will return to Denver from May 24-26th, 2018 at a historic home in the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. Nourishment is an evening length performance experience aimed at provoking all five senses, through the collaboration of dance, live music, theater, storytelling, visual arts, set design, food and drinks.

In this chapter of Nourishment the audience is pulled into a non-linear world of aging as the cast shares experiences of what it feels like to be a child, to be a teenager, and to enter adulthood. The performance explores what dreams feel like and how reality unfolds. What does it mean to take responsibility, to fulfill expectations, and to feel disillusionment? How does this vast range of joys and struggles manifest itself within us? Is there ever a point when we stop growing up? Nourishment invites the audience to ponder these sorts of questions throughout the show while experiencing each performer’s inner world and perspective.

To further the all-sensory experience, attendees will enjoy a 6-course menu of small bites paired with wines/beer/spirits (included in ticket price). 

 Collaborating Artists/Cast for these performances will include:

Gwendolyn Gussman (Director, Concept, Performer)

Anna Driftmier (Set Design)
Mara Driscoll (Performer)  
Nico Gonzales (Performer)
Aja Jackson (Lighting Designer, Stage Manager, Performer)
Jett Kwong Kelly (Musical Director, Performer)
Xenia Mansour (Performer)

Kevin Quinn Marchman (Performer)  
Trevor New (Musician, Performer)

Nourishment’s Trevor New and Gwendolyn Gussman will be showing a brand new work-in-progress on Feb. 10th, , 2018 as one of 6 choreographers selected to part of the Uptown Rising Showcase for Bridge to Dance in NYC.

The Bridge for Dance Inc.,  is bringing back it’s emerging choreographers series- previously known as “The Attitude Free Performance Series”. 

We strive to provide choreographers a space to showcase their work in a unique and intimate, judgement-free setting. The performance will be held in our largest studio that will be converted to a black box theatre, complete with full lighting and sound. 

During the performance, the audience will have the opportunity to provide written feedback, and select their favorite piece. 

Following the showcase there will be an open feedback session, where choreographers will be able to engage with the audience about their work and process.
