Kicked Out Of Death
Kicked Out Of Death
a theater event between two men having been thrown into the world and the fraternity of strangers. This play of confined nomadism unfolds atop a 4x8-foot sheet of galvanized aluminum which acts as a stage within the stage, a shifting aesthetic trashground of a few exhausted objects, relics of a life of work and learning and food, and the hint of another world beneath their feet. One wants what the other has; the other wants what's missing. Inhabitants of a space of aftermath, in a time of aftermath, the two fight impossibility within themselves and each other. It is possible, having been 'Kicked Out', that they are now trying to get back in, to the particular. 'are you dead?' one asks the other. The two are violated by language and use it as bait, weapon and toy, for and against intimacy; the meaning of things becomes a postmortal struggle of hilarity and humiliation. Hyper-specific events of love, rage, support, subservience, celebration, robbery and abandonment are elevated to the tension of ritual-with its autonomous brutality of repetition and otherworldly logic-and the meaning of what is happening seems simultaneously apparent and teetering
