Dirt at Under St. Marks
Dreck Productions and the Austrian Cultural Forum presents Dirt, by Robert Schneider, opening at Under St. Marks on 5 Apr 2008, following previews from 2 Apr and running through to 26 Apr 2008.
Dirt centers on Sad, a desperately alienated illegal immigrant from Iraq, who confronts xenophobia, latent racism and ethnocentrism as he sells roses on the streets to make ends meet. He is charming, cynical, humorous, violent and sad. Although he loves the English language and American culture he misses his homeland. As Sad continues to talk it becomes increasingly clear that he has a love-hate relationship with himself, his heritage and the western world he currently lives in.
Directed by David Robinson, Dirt is performed by Christopher Domig.
The creative team comprises Gabriel Garza (set), Rebecka Domig (costume) and Greg Brostrom (lighting and sound).
