Through a collaboration with the Watermill Center and Adam Baranello, a multidisciplinary artist, filmmaker, musician, and dancer, the East End Special Players Explorers Program will show off its latest project, Fusée, on Thursday.

The multimedia project includes visual works and performances that draw inspiration from Mr. Baranello's original song "Rocket Ship," as well as from the Explorers' own workshop experiences in the Watermill Center's Inclusion Arts Program. Fusée culminates in a short film that incorporates the themes of "love, friendship, and connection."

The East End Special Players is a group of adults "with diverse abilities and special health care needs" who cultivate life skills, self-expression, and self-confidence through theater performances and artistic experiences.

The show on Thursday starts at 6 p.m., with a reception beforehand at 5:30. Tickets are free but must be reserved ahead of time online via Eventbrite. The direct link is
