SURFACING at Live Arts Exchange

Bootleg Theater

2220 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90057

8:00pm

(SEPT. 10-13) SURFACING is an unfurling lament, rendered through song, video and stage, of the brilliant human details we lose track of and recreate in the ongoing disintegration and reintegration of culture and history. The piece employs Waller’s signature collision of song, storytelling and visual stage picture to reassemble the stories of characters collected in a single living room one January evening in Manhattan.

“Though he might be better known as a pop singer-songwriter–albeit one of uncommon delicacy and sophistication– Waller is making his mark in multidisciplinary theater.” - OREGON LIVE
