Lost and Desperately Driving (Around the Bed of Reality)



This is a performance piece telling a story via a short film that provides a theatrical context for a simultaneous, onstage masked performance.

A masked figure named Pinka sits silently on the dark floor of the stage listening to a phone conversation and staring at a doll tied to a chair, lying on its side.

Near the end of the film, the masked figure hurriedly uses scissors to remove pink buttons from the doll’s small, white sweater, then stands and casts handfuls of small pink buttons into the audience, before shuffling offstage.
