Automal

AARON SPENCER
8 pm Saturday-Sunday, July 26-27, Sunday July 27 | $12
The Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven
SE 2nd Avenue and Hawthorne Boulevard
 
Kate Rafter and her experimental group Automal present a work in progress about what it means to be human and not-so-human. In Tír fo Thuinn (the Old Irish name for the "Otherworld"), Rafter and three other women play characters, some human and some figments of the others' imaginations—or maybe not; this is experimental theater. A bathtub is involved. So is lots of seaweed. Characters will speak and sing (or maybe they won't—it depends on if a train goes by). The whole thing should last about 20 to 30 minutes, and it's preceded by an aerialist opening act. One more thing: The venue is a private club; you must RSVP on the Facebook page or bring a show flyer to be admitted.
