love.abz 

Friday, October 14
6:00pm-6:00pm | Segal Center

love.abz takes as its starting point an unperformed play, written in Finnish. The scenes of the play are treated as material in a process of transmogrification that often violates notions of authorial ownership, not to mention grammar. Engaged in other textual games too, love.abz invites its viewers to consider new forms of co-authorial playwriting.

Artists Involved
Written by Otso Huopaniemi; Performed by Emily Gleeson, Federico Rodriguez, and Eeva Semerdjiev; Dramaturgy by Hannah Hessel
