One of the most sacred taboos in theater is broken when mime and spoken word unite in Human Identity, a solo show from Christopher Vened. A star of Henryk Tomaszewski's world-famous Wroclaw Pantomime Theater, Vened was the toast of the Eastern European theater scene until he daringly defected while on tour in the West. In the decades since, he's become an influential force in the worlds of performance and training, writing a key textbook and teaching at UCLA. His latest piece of "monodrama theatre" is nothing less than a quest to figure out the meaning of human identity. Funny, inventive and eye-opening, Human Identity has its world premiere at the CoHo Theatre. Learn More
In Crooked, life sucks forfourteen year old Laney who, besides dealing with typical teenage angst is afflicted by a muscle disordercalled dystonia, which causes her posture to angle to one side as her back muscles fight withthemselves even while at rest. Her mother Elise is recently divorced, in crisis, and has moved herself and her daughter to Oxford, Mississippi where the question “Have you found a church?” is considered polite conversation.
Laney has a burning desire to be a writer and she uses her active imagination to write vividly violent short stories. When she befriends Maribel, the openhearteddaughter of an evangelical preacher, Laney uses her penchant for fiction to reinvent herself with actions as rebellious as they are
cries for acceptance. This sensitive story of sexual and spiritual awakening follows Laney as she battles her inner demons in her quest to be loved.
Please be advised that Crooked contains adult themes. There will be no intermission.
