The Interrogation/By the Numbers | Deaf Austin Theatre
Deaf Austin theatre is a non-profit theatre company located in Austin Texas that strives to produce original and published works through American Sign Language. In the spring of 2021, amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Deaf Austin Theatre hosted a virtual short play festival, sending out a call for new, original short plays written by Deaf playwrights. On April 30th, DAT premiered a total of 6 new plays, including The Interrogation/By the Numbers written by Alexandria Wailes and directed by Anne Tomasetti. The Interrogation/By the Numbers is a Twilight Zone-esque inspired piece exploring the ideas of belonging, identity and tribalism. In this piece, the elevator is a metaphor for consciously moving upwards towards enlightenment and when it descends, towards becoming more grounded within oneself. When the elevator doors open, it is acknowledging who we are when we move forward from our own (and collective) past.
The Elephant and the Light in Claire’s Suitcase | Greg Romero & Liz Fisher
Claire carries a suitcase holding memories of a life she doesn’t know she is leaving. Joined by an almost-remembered Bruce and an Elephant who transports things, Claire wanders, searching the pieces of her life. Told through puppetry and music, we invite you to witness this dance of saying goodbye.
