2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival: With My Eyes Shut
The 2016 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival will present Goat Song Collective's With My Eyes Shut.
Two people who’ve been found to be on the autism spectrum, find themselves stuck in clown school to learn social skills. Naomi, a dance prodigy in her twenties, feels in colors and refuses to wear a clown nose. Cole, a percussion virtuoso, can recite a complete history of the xylophone, but won’t meet your eyes. Measured against scales of social competence, they’ll push the boundaries of compliance to find connection in an isolating world and shatter the complacency of the nameless faces and disembodied voices running the show.
Goat Song Collective is a new theatre company of early-career and multidisciplinary theatre artists based in the Dallas area.
Performances will take place in the Studio Theatre.
