A 10-Minute Performance for an Audience of One
March 10th-21st, 2021
Locations in Point Breeze, East Oak Lane, Passyunk Crossing

This socially-distanced, radically intimate performance takes place between you and a single actor through a closed window of a private home in your choice of three locations across the city. Alone, you arrive at a street corner and are guided to a private residence where a single chair awaits you, facing a window shrouded by blinds. You take your seat, put on headphones, and watch as the blinds slowly rise to reveal a woman inside, swaying in her rocker. Her thoughts, in the form of Beckett’s text, enter directly into your ears, allowing your mind and hers to merge. In EgoPo’s intensely intimate version of this famed avant-garde classic, solo audience members witness a haunting and hypnotic ten-minute journey of birth, death, and isolation.
