the tv is on

Martha Hill Theater, Bennington College, Bennington, VT. December 2016.

the tv is on is a full-length piece directed by chloë engel. Using a TV as the 5th and central performer, this piece deconstructs relationship, longing, and grief within an archetypal family unit.  The myth inside the family portrait, the loss of time when staring at a TV,  intimacy within the home, and ranting as survival are notable themes in this work.

Geoffrey Ballinger
