|Wounds to the Face
| Open: 04/26/06 Close: 04/29/06
Written in 1994 and rarely seen in the U.S., Wounds to the Face is a combination of timeless stories that are forced together in order to produce feelings of outrage and pity at the conditions this mask we call identity imposes on our lives. What do we mean by ‘losing face'? What if this were literal? Are we heading towards a future where faces are simply a commodity, interchangeable—where a new face can be chosen as we now choose a new piece of clothing? The performance given here by Room5001 Theatre jumps boldly into an investigation of these questions—it is fresh and tragic, creating an environment where there is NO protection from the everyday terrors we do not allow ourselves to face.
