HUMAN FRUIT BOWL (1 W)
A tub, a scarf, a stool and a naked woman. In 1920s Paris, when the painter Pierre Bonnard marries another woman, his model and lover Renee Monchaty kills herself in a bathtub. Or so the story goes. Part story, part mystery, part live fine art modeling session, this fast-paced monologue delivered in stillness asks: What are the stories we tell about artists and their muses? What are the truths, if any, to be found?
Winner, Creative Award for best production at Prague Fringe Festival 2011. Named “Best of Prague Fringe” by Amsterdam Fringe. Invited to participate in Amsterdam Fringe and Hong Kong Microfest. Premiered in New York in terraNOVA Collective’s soloNOVA Arts Festival 2012.
COMPLETE (1 W, 2 M, 1 girl)
Before Tony Robbins… Before The Secret… The Training taught us that we “create” our lives. Two obsessive linguists, a nine-year-old zealot, and a magnetic seminar leader meet head-on in a time-splitting wrangle over the power and perversion of language. When Eve discovers that Micah is doing the same self-help Training that twisted her childhood lexicon, what will stop her from destroying them both?
