WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Kitchen presents a new dance-theater piece by Michael Portnoy. The K Sound consists of a series of experimental jokes about a mythical community, which are presented by a Professor of Comedy, sung by a diva-wizard, and enacted by members of a large and diverse cast of performers that includes dancers, actors, non-performers, and singers, as well as a wide range of performance styles that range from micro-choreography to behavioral movement. Told through a series of tightly choreographed and alternately humorous, mysterious and disturbing scenes, each based on a particular joke. The K Sound explores the poetic possibilities of the joke and addresses broad cultural assumptions, stereotypes, and prejudices embedded in a joke's content and structure.
