Open: 11/01/14- Close: 11/15/14 BAL-TRAP
Bal-Trap, a play By Xavier Durringer, is a bittersweet drama. The action takes place after a popular gig on the village square, where two young people begin their love story while two others try to restore their passionate love, the one they had before daily chores doused their flame. But bumps and bruises are present, hidden deep inside, ignored, but still guiding the characters toward a fate that prevents them from living their one true Love. Each of them is looking for a soul mate, but they cannot understand each other. They follow their “Sweet Dream” to escape their loneliness and their pasts, believing, with an insatiable faith, in a better future where true Love can move mountains and make them – and the rest of us – travel to the ends of the earth.

Open: 11/06/14- Close: 11/23/14 SNOW IN THE LIVING ROOM
In Snow in the Living Room, Orietta Crispino presents a visually striking and poetically sensual distillation of the classic Snow White fairy tale. Inert in her crystal coffin, Bianca finds that her liberation will never come from a redeemer outside herself; instead, she must acknowledge her own fractured soul and accept death as a facet of what it means to be fully human. Echoing the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Snow in the Living Room exists in the interstitial space between body and self. It is a dynamic story of fear and desire, told through splintered mirror images and complex soundscapes.

“I can’t escape my Shadow…”

Snow in the Living Room, written by Orietta Crispino as a poetic monodrama in Italian, has been adapted and translated into English by Marco Casazza.
