Shitting, farting, STDs, growing old, class shaming, language shaming…we all shame ourselves.
Shame connects and disconnects. Shame is collective, but isolates. Shame is private and political/public. Shame flows between me and others, past and future, childhood and adulthood. Shame is hiding, shame is control, social and individual control.
The play stages the stories of the actor and contemporary social and politic events.
With masks and puppets, drag and glitter, let’s all shame ourselves!
Followed by a post-performance discussion.
We are very pleased to present this initial public performance of a new work-in-progress by the team who brought Baba to the 2016 Expat Expo | Immigrant Invasion Festival!
