High-energy humorist Dirck Toll returns with another set of hilariously twisted tales, including the premiere of two all-new pieces: Exhibit X, and Connective Issues. His staging will set a leading example for carbon-neutral entertainment: natural lighting, natural amplification, a backdrop of salvaged materials, and a stylish wardrobe from secondhand shops.
The Albany Times-Union says, "Calling Dirck Toll and underground Mark Twain might be a bit of a stretch, but not by much," and Dirck's hyperkinetic blend of theater, performance art, literature, and comedy have made his previous shows picks-of-the-week in many area newspapers.
This edition of Levelling Charges finds Dirck single-handedly acting out stories that feature an aggressive passer-by, a sarcastic piece of office furniture, a collision of poets, and a mystifying construction project. The mind-jolting humor of Levelling Charges makes it abundantly clear that a show doesn't need electricity to be electrifying. As Dirck puts it, "Power corrupts, so let's see if using less power will corrupt me any less!"
