Drawing from Jungian psychology, the vernacular of country music, Wagner’s concept of Gesamtkuntswerk, and the imagery of Butoh, German Expressionism, and Bauhaus, The Origin of Irrevery is a staged explanation of a psychological odyssey. It centers around SHE, a frowning misfit in a world run by THEM. SHE is surrounded by THEM: smiling, normal, and growing increasingly more uncomfortable by HER inability to smile along as well. We meet HER at the end of a silent, personal war with THEM and witness HER subconscious on the brink of confrontation. This confrontation and the eventual construction and deconstruction of The Mask, a visage developed to impress THEM and conceal HER true nature, is guided by IRREVERY.

Tickets: $15 in advance, $18 at the door, $12 students / seniors / ID NYC
