Biography

Company Ink, a captivating performance collective specializing in tailored thematic shows and original musical theater, presents the world premiere of their first full length original musical “Ciao Eden!” Inspired by her decade long tenure performing nationally and internationally with Cabaret Diosa, Kim Franco stars in this intrepid, risqué and comical production on tour throughout Colorado in 2008.

Daring, steamy and hilarious “Ciao Eden!” is a modern day revival of the tale of Adam and Eve. This musical comedy features Eve on her quest towards self-awareness. Witness as she tastes of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, embarking on an expansive odyssey of hilarity and humanity.

From opium den burlesque to circus macabre, from gypsy klesmer to West African high-life, “Ciao Eden!” showcases an all-star live band, under the direction of Composer and Musical Director Brian Schey. Employing revolutionary theatrical techniques including 360-degree video projection, “Ciao Eden!” will have audiences dancing in the aisles and demanding clothing optional zones across the globe.

In addition to Franco’s spirited portrayal of Eve, nationally recognized performance artist Liza Oxnard of Zuba and The Liza Band brings an endearing twist to the shrewd and scintillating character Serena, The Snake. Gay & Lesbian American Music Awards nominee Casey Collins offers his sublime multi-octave voice and exceptional theatrical direction to make this production a dazzling psychoacoustic journey of the senses.

Join Company Ink for the re-telling of the world’s most ancient love story, “Ciao Eden!”.

Lyrics

Original Love

Written By: B. Schey/E. Humphrey

a seed she plants
a distant dance
grows quick on the vine

one moment drips
a full eclipse
some different design

From the water, sunlight and dust
In her voice is the sound
A trickle, a flood
The rushing of blood
And to her I am bound
I am bound

It came from above
this original love
and the world spun around
it happened with us
one heart, one trust
for in her I am found

He is my flesh and bone
He is my wine
But I can no longer drink
The comfort that binds

Up through the darkened leaves
I slowly climb
Searching for shadows
And clouds in my eyes
my eyes

It came from above
this original love
and the world spun around
it happened with us
one heart, one trust
for in you I am found

In Time

Written By: B. Schey/E. Humphrey/

In times that bleed us deep, in times that flow
In time I’ll learn to see the way things go
away- you’ll take my hand

Before I didn’t cry before a friend
Before you brought me here to understand
the sun- will rise again

And there are stars that pull on my heart tonight
Galaxies will push me to open my eyes to see

what could be

In time you’ll see the dark that can be found
But light it seems to always find it’s way
turn night into day

Everything that starts will/must have an end
Don’t look back when you’re around the bend
Just know we’ll meet again

And there are stars that pull on my heart tonight
Galaxies will push you to open my eyes

And there are stars that pull on your heart tonight
Galaxies will push you to open your eyes to see

What can be

What will be

From the deepest well

IN TIME…

Stories I will tell

IN TIME…

Beyond my last farewell

IN TIME…

Stories I will tell

IN TIME…

Stories I will tell...

Our Neck of The Woods

Written By: B. Schey/K. Lieberman/E. Humphrey/L. Oxnard/K. Franco

Here in the garden, this garden of bliss
Where the pleasure is limitless, time has no end
Plants for the feasting, voluptuous hills
Fruit ripe for picking and we get our fill

Boys and the girls play like birds and the bees
Stopping to roll in effluvious green.
Nectar drenched nape in our neck of the woods
Flora and fauna and bulging manhood

As seeds in the ground our plans they were laid
We’re just as pure as the day we were made
Day in and out making sweet dreams in bed
We never wonder just what lies ahead

Here in the garden, this garden of bliss
Where the pleasure is limitless, time has no end
Here in the garden, this garden of bliss
Where the pleasure is limitless, time has no end

Who's That Shakin' My Tree

Written By: B. Schey/L. Oxnard

Who’s that, what’s that
What’s that sound I hear
What’s that who’s that
Why you sniffin’ here.

Are you searchin’ for sublime
If you’ve been itchin’ all this time
To unwind, magnify, gratify
But you better look out, now

Who’s that knockin’ at my tree
Better take care I’m a viper see
Don’t brush you hand across my leaves
This slope is slippery
So don’t you come shakin’ my tree

Who’s that, what’s that
What you think you need?
What’s that who’s that
This bite’s gonna bleed

Don’t you see it may ensare
And it will never repair,
When despair, fills the air, you lie bare
so you better look out now

Who’s that shakin’ at my tree
Better take care I’m a viper see
Don’t brush you hand across my leaves
This slope is slippery
So don’t you come shakin’ my tree

Pay a price to free your mind…..blind
