About this show

Self at Hand is a post-tragic trilogy that snares the watcher in a future gone round the bend. It is a time when androids can be distinguished from humans only by the taste of their flesh, when celebrities are federally regulated, and when corpses are artificially animated for their funeral. Hilarity and cruelty clash in this post-natural time of see-through skull plates surgically implanted so we can see ourselves seeing ourselves. Self at Hand utilizes video projection as the sole source of stage lighting. The video not only illuminates the actors but also casts the stage décor and forms metaphorical undertones of the dramatic narrative.
