Fog Machine & brief Cigarette Smoke
Starring: John Fleck
Directed by: Randee Trabitz
This show pits theater and cinema against each other in an hysterically funny and disturbing dialectical tennis match between live performance and mediatized image. And as the title suggests, Fleck indeed does play all the parts – screenwriter, narrator, commentator / critic and all other characters, both human and animal in a tour-de-force that probes into the dark depravities of a strange family living in a dilapidated house along the coast of Maine.
Besides employing all tropes of the filmic genre Fleck also holds up a cracked mirror reflecting a mediatized and polarized American landscape experiencing what philosopher Jean Beaudrillard refers to as ‘Death of the Real’ where the distinction between the ‘real’ and the ‘simulation’ of reality has collapsed.
