MONSTERS: a Mixed Media Event
The 2017 Oregon Fringe Festival presents a devised mixed-media performance event called MONSTERS created by students of the Oregon Center for the Arts, directed by James Donlon.
Have you ever looked deep into the cracks and crevices of your imagination? Peered into those dark mysterious chambers where forces lurk you don’t want to let out, or even acknowledge exist? Those surprising destinations hidden in the far reaches of YOU. In these sunken caverns, steamy jungles, and lost deserts MONSTERS live: Personal Monsters that often manage to escape and shred the sense of normality and tranquility. We have all felt them and seen them! Social, Political, Mythic, Cinematic, Sexual, Personal……….MONSTERS!
