New York City
My Onliness, presented in American Sign Language and English, is a fable/cabaret/circus entertainment about a mad King’s desperate attempt to impress a mysterious petitioner. (The poor Writer is simply collateral damage!) Is this a glimpse of our dystopian future? Or just the structure of human consciousness?
Laced with songs of torture, truth, and tenderness; with fully integrated American Sign Language performed by two “Mediums” of the royal court; this is sexy, visceral, dark buffoonery reimagined as The New Absurd; a homage to Stanislaw Witkacy and his theories of “pure theatre”.
A co-production by One-Eighth Theater & New Ohio Theatre & IRT Theater
