SIGN FELT!Alexandra Tatarsky
In a comic exploration of madness, despair, and the abyss, performer Alexandra Tatarsky channels Andy Kaufman in an improvisational coming of age tale that is part Harpo Marx, part avante-garde poetry and part quarter-life crisis that asks: is it possible that humor might save us from the horror of existence?
If Seinfeld is a show about nothing, then SIGN FELT! is a show about nothingness. Tatarsky, a NYC based writer/performer is making her Canadian premiere at UNO Fest.
“…frenetic, frantic, kinetic, and manic… and mesmerizing” –Theatre Jones
