The Shades of Gray Presents 'Peace/Piece of Mine' at West Park Presbyterien Church
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
Based on the one-act monodrama 'Request Concert' published by Franz Xaver Kroetz in 1973, 'Peace/Piece of Mine', conceived and performed by Miriam Ibrahim, is the portrayal of a spectacularly unspectacular suicide.
'Peace/Piece of Mine' invites the audience to accompany a woman during the last few hours of her mundane life. A wordless story of isolation, loneliness, desolation and unfulfilled desires is told through the actress's physical enactment of the protagonist's internal struggle. Accompanied by David Salazar's and Carla Fabiani's original music and performed on a plain, unpretentious set, 'Peace/Piece of Mine' asks us to listen for the silent scream that all too often remains unheard.
The creative team includes David Salazar (Violin), Carla Fabiani (Viola), Nick Innacone (Set), Leonie Ettinger (Production Stage Manager), Nao Daboshi and Aria Pretzel (Video/ Photos), Gabriela Aragon (Production Assistant).
Tickets are $15 and available at http://www.theshadesofgray.org.
