The Voice of Unreason

Just did something totally out of the ordinary and saw a play! This was no ordinary play though. Architecting by the TEAM is a surrealistic cometragedramady that makes David Lynch seem tame. This unique narrative covers New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, told through the madness of a grieving-28 year old-former child genius-daughter of a dead architect and filtered through Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone With The Wind.' Confused yet? Don't try to understand, just let it happen. While the storytelling is anything but traditional, the acting is classically superb and the sound/video design is truly engaging and enhancing to the overall work. Architecting was recently presented at the Under the Radar Festival earlier this month and has been extended now through Feb 15th after rave reviews. Catch it at PS122.
