Pebble-And-Cart Cycle: One-Line Tragedies
The piece utilizes projections, film, puppetry, and the masterful kinetic and vocal work of its actors to discover, explore, and expand the personal moments of individual crisis that harden themselves into the pebbles, into the hard bits of trauma and doubt, that people carry with them throughout their lives. Polina Kilmovitskaya, conceptualizer and director, creates collaborative experimental works to excavate these pebbles and, by approaching them with an artistic and dynamic bent, exhume the buried drama that is innate within each psychic wound. The piece begins with two actors on stage, supine and still, while a black and white film of a woman, grotesque in her endless consumption of food and wine, grows increasingly agitated and off-kilter while the sound of flies fills the space. Two such films are shown throughout the piece, both of which could occupy the rest of this review with their own merited analyses. The piece launches from this filmic core; a third actor enters an evocative fly puppet/costume and a tale of a father's death from heart attack, a child's longing for understanding and escape, and the yearning for family, for creation in the face of death, erupts.
