Eriko Azuma, director of Hanjo/Left to Tell
One woman waits for her lover, another for her killer…
RedSoil Theater presents two haunting stories from Japan and Rwanda: HANJO by Yukio Mishima and LEFT TO TELL, adapted from the book by Immaculée Ilibagiza. Raw, physical truths in text and movement, erotic, harrowing, ultimately transcendent.
Jeremy Aluma & Turner Munch from That Beautiful Laugh
Departing from his home, the moon, a wise old man travels with his weathered precious trunk to a world that has forgotten how to laugh. Hoping to extinguish cynicism and judgement and replace it with joy and curiosity, he brings an arsenal of clowns, ignorant to the rules of the world. Together, these clowns must embark on a quest to find that beautiful laugh. Searching through each other and their audience the clowns will discover and examine every avenue of laughter; love, joy, mischief, pain, fear, sadness and more, hoping to find the laugh that they have all been waiting for…That Beautiful Laugh. 2011 Hollywood Fringe’s Top of the Fringe winner and national touring troupe, Four Clowns bring you a show about the joys of laughter. Directed by Turner Munch, director of 2011 Hollywood Fringe hit, Porter’s Macbeth.
UPDATE 6/19/2012: There were some technical difficulties, and an extended version of the interview will be posted soon. -CMJ
