The Cherry Arts presents SPAM, a new multimedia theatre piece based on a modular text by Argentine theater-maker Rafael Spregelburd and starring downtown stalwart Vin Knight of Elevator Repair Service. SPAM hops us out-of-order through thirty days in the life of a lost Italian linguistics professor who has awakened in a cheap hotel room in Malta with a bump on his head and no memories. A copy of Camus LEtranger in his front pocket and the spam e-mails on his laptop are all he has to regain his identity. With a light touch and a dizzying intellect, Spregelburd spins an absurd apocalyptic fantasy that incorporates James Bond and the swirling island of plastic in the Pacific Ocean, wrestling not only with our chronically overstuffed inboxes, but with one mans attempt at self-rescue in the face of the flood of consumer goods and media items that our late-capitalist civilization is generating with ever more speed.
