ANOTHER TELEPATHIC THING, 2000
Adapted from Mark Twain’s The Mysterious Stranger
ANOTHER TELEPATHIC THING splices a story by Mark Twain with text from actual film and television auditions to create a contemporary parable about faith, temptation, and transformation that is both painful and humorous.
“In ANOTHER TELEPATHIC THING, all theatrical elements are exploited and employed toward a single goal: engaging the audience in a basic philosophical question about the nature of good and evil and the weight of human existence...the effect of the final speech is shattering...BIG DANCE THEATER has tackled the metaphysical threat of meaninglessness with a performance of exceptional cohesion and richness.”
