SELF-TAUT: It's senior year at Suffern High School and secret homo/teacher's pet Chris Tyler's balls are in a twist. Figuratively, of course. But also literally, too. Get ready to party like it's 2005 because nothing says "I love you" like an acute testicular torsion. SELF-TAUT is a riotously melancholic solo performance exploring the roots of an often-stressful, always-exaggerated sex anxiety. Intimacy issues encouraged.
hard wear soft drive: "The history, the pain, the subtext, the sex! Where do the heels end and the man begin?" "A battle for identity transcends the implications of a man in heels. In this multimedia, one-man show inspired by Taoist philosophy and Carl Jung's archetypes, the differences between masculine and feminine, live and recorded, passive and active, a man and his heels, are blurred and inverted in a dizzying spiral effect. www.hardwearsoftdrive.com"
Portions of this work were developed at The Harold Clurman Center for New Works in Movement and Dance Theatre at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
