Trekland’s Portal 47 is thrilled to present an intimate Los Angeles hour with an icon of living history: At 78, Andreea “Andee” Kindryd looks back on an incredible life that uniquely connected her to the three assassinated civil rights leaders: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr and how the Watts Riot and her miniskirts landed her on the original Star Trek with Gene L. Coon, the “Forgotten Gene” of Star Trek.
Andreea returns for a Los Angeles visit from her home of 40 years in Australia to bring us rare, vibrant insights and everyday memories of Coon as well as Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the historic cast and crew— and speak for those long gone and to the vibe of those times. Star Trek set her on a course of filmmaking, meditation, and later, her career as a storyteller. Learn a bit about her stalwart forebears too, and you’ll see why this TED Talk finalist is as much a force of nature as she seemed when she turned up in Stephen Whitfield Poe’s landmark best-seller, The Making of Star Trek.
Star Trek author/editor/host and documenter Larry Nemecek is producing the encounter under his Trekland banner and new-wave Portal47.net fan experience—where no savvy Trek fan has gone before!—and will serve as host to Andreea to spur and spark some spontaneous, outspoken recollections.
STARTS at 7:30PM. At Impro Studio (1727 N Vermont Ave. #208 Los Angeles, CA 90027)
Mixing genuine Star Trek: TNG reverence with skilled storytelling, the crew of the USS McGinley (commanded by Captain Georgia S. Thompson) improvises authentic voyages through the Alpha quadrant with a cast of memorable characters. Sometimes thrilling, usually funny, always engaging.
A mainstay at Impro Studio, The Improvised Generation presents a special-edition run this August, titled “The Lost Episodes.” An improv mini-series of away-mission “episodes” that begin in a shuttlecraft away from the USS McGinley, and focus on the personal journeys of two main characters in strange new worlds. Inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes such as Final Mission, Captain’s Holiday, and Family.
The Improvised Generation’s cast is a group of working professional actors who train at Impro Studio, as well as other renowned improv, theater, and acting institutions. Accompanied by a technical improviser adding lights, sound effects, and music, the ensemble spins a completely original improvised story in the world of Star Trek, based on the audience’s initial suggestion.
From The Geek Authority: “What impressed me the most is the intensity and conviction of their characters and characterizations. Those moments of pure ‘I have no idea where I am going…’ looks in their eyes as they make it all up right there on the spot in front of you…. Spontaneous Trek Comedy at its best!”
