Violators will be Violated
Created and Performed by Casey Smith
Produced and Directed by Jennifer A. Skinner
NAMED ONE OF THE TOP 10 SHOWS OF 2009 BY LA WEEKLY
CURRENTLY NOMINATED FOR BEST SOLO PERFORMANCE BY LA WEEKLY
Circle X Theatre Co. is proud to present Violators Will Be Violated as part of the 14th annual New York International Fringe Festival – FringeNYC.
Violators Will Be Violated is the surreal answer to the question, "If a mime gets humiliated, chopped in half, and fed to cannibals in the forest, is everyone a little happier?" This unique, unconventional, nearly wordless theatrical experience has more destruction, mayhem, murder, ambition, and special effects than an action film but it's only one guy, with no props or set, relying solely on the physical story-telling of one elastic, sometimes friendly but frequently hostile performer.
In short, anything you can't imagine, you just might.

"Smith is insane...Nobody with an iota of self-restraint or self-respect would put on a show like this, another with hardly a word spoken...This is Smith’s answer to Michelangelo’s David, an homage to our times, as puerile and self-absorbed as we are. I loved every minute of it." -Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly
"With all the grace of a drunken maniac, Smith abuses his body and his dignity in this contorted mime-style show that is outright hilarious...words are secondary to humor, while suicide and deprivation are indispensable." -David Jette, LA Theatre ReviewAbout the Company: Circle X Theatre Co.
