Theatre Vertigo presents a new, short play by ensemble member Heath Hyun Houghton*.
Director Asae Dean and choreographer Thien Kim Bui create a sensual and kaleidoscopic multimedia presentation that is part experimental film, part photo essay, part radio play.
A young writer, Tae Hoh (Samson Syharath) has recently lost his partner. Through an unlikely encounter with the ghosts of Anita Pallenberg (Jacquelle Davis), who was deeply connected with The Rolling Stones and Peter Orlovsky (Murren Kennedy), a Beat writer and Allen Ginsburg’s longtime partner, Tae Hoh comes to a turning point in this exploration of grief, inspiration and creativity.
Featuring the music of Laura Nyro
