HUMAN IDENTITY (Portland performances)
The Los Angeles-based writer and performer Christopher Vened brings his inventive, funny and eye-opening work to Portland, Oregon.
He is the author of In Character: An Actor's Workbook for Character Development. Part I of this book "Identity" inspired him to create the one-man show "Human Identity." The show is done in a rare formula of a monodrama theatre that combines words and mime. It is a comedy.
In the 70s and early 80s, Vened was an actor in the Wroclaw Pantomime Theater of Henryk Tomaszewski, and played leading roles in shows that dazzled the world. In the end of 1981 he defected to the West while on tour in West Germany because martial law was declared in Poland. Since then he has lived in the West--first in West Berlin for two and a half years until finally settling in the United States. Mind you, it is hard not to see that he became a citizen of the world and an international artist. Whether here or there, he has always been involved in the work of theater: directing, teaching, and performing. And here is the through line: theater is a country without borders.
