Slight Headache, A

Slight Headache, A

Artist Alyson Pou will play a mother and daughter joined by their hair in A Slight Headache, her solo performance/installation that recreates a 19th century Dime Museum or Sideshow. The event aims to transport audiences back to a time when 'the wonders of nature, the works of man' were displayed for profit with amazing theatricality. The classic theme of a daughter's struggle for freedom and a mother's quest for survival takes place among the strange, the unusual, the bizarre, and the exotic. The daughter of this Drama miraculously sprang from her mother's forehead at birth. Since that time, their shared and indestructible hair has joined the pair. Over the years, the daughter has grown and the hair has grown but the hair cannot be cut. In order to survive, the Mother exploits this freakish condition. In nightly entertainments, the Mother sings, recounts her daughter's extraordinary birth and invites viewers to try to cut their hair. The daughter tells fortunes. But tonight the daughter refuses to perform. She reveals secrets about herself and the hair that drive the women to a final, perhaps fatal, confrontation witnessed by the audience.
