Mabou Mines presents
Carl Hancock Rux
Online performances: July 30 – August 8, 2021
Running time 50-55 min
Vs. can be considered part tribunal of evidence — guided and constrained by the statutory powers of the “Interrogator” — and part psychodynamic investigation of a sovereign polity, a collective of accused citizenry. Vs. creates a philosophical tribunal to acquit or prosecute crimes against humanity. As writer Carl Hancock Rux and team work within the new parameters that “zoom performance” affords, Vs. indulges in a virtual game of ‘tag’ in which members of the audience find themselves complicit when randomly selected as “The Interrogator” — an identity hack that speaks a new digital patois.
Support for Vs. was provided by Venturous Theater Fund, a fund of Tides Foundation.
