Reggie Watts: Disinformation
Anthropological humorist Reggie Watts utilizes the latest in presentational technologies to comment on humanity’s refusal to accept an eventual global shift towards unimaginable destruction. A mélange of absurdist storytelling, video imagery, geometric movement sequences and spontaneous musical compositions, Disinformation, featuring Amy O’Neal and Orianna Herrman, is a comedic conceptual deconstruction of the human need to understand itself. A staple of the international performance scene, Reggie received the 2006 Andy Kaufman award for comedic performance.

Deja Taylor: School Agers
Deja Taylor performed in the final round of competition at the 2007 Louder Than a Bomb Teen Poetry Festival, presented by Young Chicago Authors, School Agers was later recorded for Chicago Public Radio.

Teatro Luna: MACHOS (excerpt)
Men. Women. Women dressed as men. Teatro Luna, Chicago’s All-Latina Theater Company, brings us MACHOS, an interview based play about contemporary masculinities. Frustrated with their boyfriends, brothers, and bosses, this company of Latina women set out to answer the question: what are men really thinking? The result is a unique performance drawn from interviews with 50 men nationwide and performed by an all-Latina cast in drag with Teatro Luna’s trademark humor and unique Latina point of view. MACHOS is presented In English with a sprinkle of Spanish.
