Silence Is Health / Silencio Es Salud is a site-specific play abour the pressing issues of human rights and accountability. Custom-designed for the Neo-Gothic, six-floor former school (built in 1898,) the CSV Center's imposing corridors and high ceilings of the are a spine-chilling, omnipresent character. In the midst of our fast-paced, individualistic society, the play zooms in on an ambitious TV reporter, her arrogant husband and her ingenuous cameraman. A whirlwind of dreadful events catches up with their seemingly ideal lives, dissolving their apparent freedom right in front of the audience's eyes. How guilty are we of what happens around us? How much can we trust others? How much can WE be trusted? What is the price of our "safety"?
