Removable Parts, a theatrical series of love songs about voluntary amputation, asks the question: in the name of love, how far might you go? Through playful language, cutting-edge music, and virtuosic live performance mixed with electronic elements, Corey Dargel and experimental pianist Kathleen Supove explore the damaged parts in each of us, whether physical, spiritual, or psychological. The songs banter in this daring and insightful work, inspired by psychiatric case studies and online research. Take a sideways look at amputees, devotees, and wannabes, with a balance of empathy, understanding, and irreverence.
