We are now featuring a video inspired by Cynthia Hopkins’ poignant and clear-eyed music-theater piece THE TRUTH: A TRAGEDY. This video has been made specially for the FEED site by Cynthia and director DJ Mendel; we hope you enjoy it.
THE TRUTH: A TRAGEDY is a commission between Soho Rep and Les Susbsistance in Lyon, France. Soho Rep will present the US Premiere in May 2010. In the show, Cynthia will be exploring the idea of tragedy in the 21st century, among other topics. Should a parent’s Parkinson’s disease be considered a contemporary tragedy? She will use wit, poignancy and a wry sensibility to tackle these issues.
