LAB INTENT

 

This ritual lab was dedicated to the exposure and excavation of personal and
social hypocrisies
as vital resources for developing forceful comic characters
entangled in farce and satirical posturing.
This theme has come to me through
an emerging and consistent impression of unchecked hypocrisy, within myself,
in those around me and the society at large, that impedes honest perception,
action and relating. By exposing and embodying these tendencies, in all their
intrinsic hilarity and horror, I hope to touch an active nerve in ourselves and
then, in one another.
This will be the experiment, the process and the goal.
- Antero Alli, director

 

Note: halfway through this lab, the group underwent a crisis
that inhibited the pursuit of a public performance of this lab.
