NY Times on UNEXPLODED ORDNANCES (UXO)




The New York Times' Elisabeth Vincentelli reviews Split Britches' UNEXPLODED ORDNANCES (UXO):


"Planes carrying nukes, the terrifying sound of life atomized into static noise: “Unexploded Ordnances (UXO)” feels very much of the minute.
Yet the feminist duo Split Britches has spent almost two years working on its new play, which bears the 1960s aesthetic of Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove” rather than the totalitarian kitsch of Kim Jong-un, so you can’t accuse the company of hot-button opportunism. These theatermakers have steadfastly remained on the outer edge of the mainstream since 1980."

Video Preview: FOLLIES IN TITUS

 
Follies in Titus from La MaMa on Vimeo.

Follies in Titus is directed by Italy's Dario D'Ambrosi, originator of the theatrical movement called Teatro Patologico (Pathological Theater), who re-imagines Shakespeare's "Titus Andronicus," retelling the bard's bloodiest and most violent work through the voices of the patients of a psychiatric hospital. The play is performed by actors from the Integrated Theater of the Emotions, an Italian university program in performing arts that he founded for people with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities.
"Follies in Titus" was influenced by the intrinsic confrontation with human violence that "Titus Andronicus" evokes in both its audience and its interpreters. This 16th century tragedy, Shakespeare's first and bloodiest, is the fictional story of Titus, a general during the late Roman Empire, who engages in a cycle of revenge with Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Titus' murder of Tamora's eldest son in a ritual of war leads to the rape and mutilation of his own daughter, Lavinia. As his revenge, Titus murders Tamora's remaining sons, bakes them into pie, and serves them to her at a feast.
