WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Following the map of experience described in Spalding Gray's masterpiece Swimming to Cambodia nearly a generation ago, Swimming to Spalding recounts one performer's pilgrimage to the sites in Thailand evoked by Gray in his account of the filming of the movie The Killing Fields. Combining Gray's signature "table and notebook" story-telling style with her own theatrical approach, performer Lian Amaris details a year of her experiences all over the world -- from Bangkok brothels to Baghdad bombings, from Mardi Gras to mental institutions. Part homage, part commentary, Swimming to Spalding reflects on how beauty and grace endure amidst the cruelties of war, prostitution, mental illness, and making art.
