About the Show:
A desperate woman is confined by her husband in hopes to cure her persistent illness. She struggles to find peace as the room’s dingy wallpaper develops a mind of its own. This devised performance fashions a kaleidoscope of one woman’s living death in exquisite captivity. The wallpaper refracts her sense of self, becoming a prism for all of us. Bare Portland collages the wallpaper’s vicious influence through movement, song, and words. Our shadows become our mirrors in this other-worldly adaptation of the classic short story.
