. . . is documentary theatre, combining words, music, and images.
From Tom Paine to Tom Cruise, from James Bond to Global Warming, the show examines the human condition (aka life) from a deeply suspicious perspective. There is something conspiratorial going on, and A Paranoid’s Guide to History can help make sense of it all.
The show’s content ranges from current events to history and seeks the broader implications of seemingly incidental events and practices. The performance itself is fashioned after a Cold War era think tank presentation.
Each piece addresses a specific socio-cultural phenomena. Woven throughout the show is the issue of how to come to terms with a contemporary culture that is continually dissolving the conceptual boundaries of being and identity. A Paranoid’s Guide to History leads the audience through this unexpected mental landscape.
