Beckett, Math, and a Bath Created by Christopher Loar Directed by Rafael Gallegos Performed by Christopher Loar & Martina Potratz What if the later and lesser known works / life of Samuel Beckett, a branch of pure mathematics known as Combinatorics and the history of bathing all had a crazy party in your bathroom? Beckett, Math and a Bath uses text, movement, technology and two humans to combine, synthesize, align and hypnotize these three ingredients into a performance like no other! Drawing specifically from Beckett's Quad, CONLAB warps the bathroom into a laboratory where two people try to connect and relate through bubble bath, equations and coursed movement.

Present Tense Written by Charles Borkhuis, Directed by Gabriel Shanks (co-director of a 2007 Obie-winning play) Performed by Frank Blocker and Ben Trawick-Smith Stage Manager: Jeni Shanks; Scenic Design: Allen Cutler; Sound Design: Robbie Heacock Two characters find themselves slipping in and out of parallel lives through "wormholes" in the space-time of the play. One believes he has dozed off with a book in his lap and the play is a curiously lucid dream, while the other is convinced that their live performances are desperately real. For both, the play's complications and reversals become increasingly fascinating and frightening.
