March, 2000
DWELLINGS, an evening of performance
Chopin Theatre, Chicago

A man seeks preservation by allowing himself to be dipped in a vat of wax by two assistants—one who skillfully manages the operation and the other who merely serves as a counterweight, wishing all the while he was the one being dipped. This elaborate yet comical ritual leaves us contemplating the struggle between vanity and mortality.
