Carnival Round the Central Figure

by Diana Amsterdam

directed by Karen Kohlhaas


A wild ride into theatrical terrain that arouses the senses, in a space fantastically suited to its provocative energy, Carnival Round the Central Figure is the story of a young girl who takes five steps to the bedside of her dying friend, simply to acknowledge that he is dying and let him go. In a staging that is both wickedly funny and giddily horrifying, she is stopped by forces of religious fervor, denial, and insane positive thinking.
