Guillermo Calderón's astonishing play KISS received its U.S. premiere a few days ago at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company in Washington, DC. Yury Urnov's visionalry direction was aided and abetted by myself and an exciting creative team which included Misha Kachman, Kelly Colburn, Max Doolittle, Tim Getman, Gabriella Fernandez Coffeey, Joe Mallon, and Shannon Dorsey. It is a very powerful show. More than one critic has called it a slap in the face. Only 99 people get to see it each night through Nov. 6. Tickets.
Yesterday, the Brayver Concern had its first showing of a new sound art installation called FRAMING DEVICE. It was a huge success. Hundreds of people took the Framing Device Journey and experienced Linn Meyers's wraparound drawings on the walls of the Hirshhorn with a brand new point of view. The piece was part of the annual Sound Scene exhibition of sound art. WAMU's Ally Schweitzer interviewed us in advance of the festival and there was a nice preview in DCist. Have a listen to a selection from the piece below.
