The fifth work in the celebrated playwright’s Garage Band Series, Philip Kan Gotanda’s #5 Angry Red Drum is the story of two world-refugees determined to survive with style amidst a post-apocalyptic universe gone mad. When a mysterious drum appears, it awakens their lost memories and inspires them to create a new society.
#5 Angry Red Drum is a tragic-comic parable reminiscent of an early David Lynch film. This world premiere features a live original sound score using traditional and found instruments, misremembered fragments of Bob Dylan lyrics, and post-post-post modern dance. This is where Beckett meets Burning Man.
