FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TITLE:POINT PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS THE MIND KING BY RICHARD FOREMAN
AT CSAA GALLERY IN THE SILENT BARN
Brooklyn, NY (9/16/14)– Title:Point Productions is proud to invite you to a new production of Richard Foreman’s 1992 masterpiece, THE MIND KING, alongside Harmful Surplus of a Humor, a solo exhibition by Mark Toneff, which also serves as the set for the hallucinogenic hour long production at CSAA Gallery inside The Silent Barn.
‘Tell the real story, which is of course very hard, because in the real story nothing happens.’
Two men in a mechanical room claim to be ‘The Mind King.’ A silent lady in the shadows pulls the strings on a live surveillance feed as they explore all manners of hopes, fears, anxieties, and emotions. They delve deep into the duality of human existence cracking open the conscious and unconscious in a hectic 60 minute romp full of complex language, poetic movement and vaudevillian tendencies.
Produced by Title:Point
Written by Richard Foreman
Directed by Theresa Buchheister
Featuring: Ryan William Downey, J.R. Rose and Melody Balczon
Performances are September 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, October 2, 3, 4 at 8pm at CSAA Gallery inside The Silent Barn. 603 Bushwick Avenue Brooklyn, NY. Admission is $10.
