The first show of Season 2 is a two-parter; two distinct, beautiful, stand-alone shows by Writer/Creator Ben Moorad. An 11-year labor of familial love, obsessive focus, and artistic dazzle that brings three live musicians, four new-to-Hand2Mouth performers, and visual/video imagery to our intimate home studio, for unforgettable poetic evenings in November.
The Art of Blushing & The Lazarus Complex
Thursdays-Saturdays, November 8-17, 2018
Writer Ben Moorad's grandfather was a psychiatrist in New Britain, Connecticut, who collected 124 stories from 1941 to 1948 of townspeople who tried to end their lives. As his grandfather was dying, Ben discovered these harrowing and deeply human stories in his papers, and Ben has spent the last 11 years researching and writing about them. The Art of Blushing and The Lazarus Complex is a part of this ongoing study of the will to live and the will to die. These two new standalone shows are a genre-blending, provocative and immersive experience combining vocal performance, a live score and visual projections.
