Synopsis 

TABULA RASA NYC THEATER AND PERFORMANCE LAB in co-production with LATEA THEATER, proudly presents the world premiere of  In The Eye of The Needle, a collective creation, written and directed by Ramiro Antonio Sandoval.

COMEDY IN ONE ACT.

APPROX. RUNNING TIME: 75 MINUTES.

A tragicomedy that reflects on contemporary life, social alienation, and the acceptance of boredom as the means to self-reinvention. After a disappearance, three characters remain trapped and under constant observation. Meandering between twisted ideas about social behavior, they struggle to create meaning (or run away from it?) while trapped in a strange place. With expulsion looming, sophistic discussions on culture and myths displace the fear of their shared circumstance. Polar and nonsensical perspectives, reveal with dark humor the make up of their uncomfortable experience

A contemporary piece that reflects, among other subjects, on the way knowledge can be replaced with useless matter, and boredom itself the salvation and the means to self-reinvention.

The show’s three-week engagement from Friday, May 25th to Sunday June 10th.
