Staged Reading of “Tim Crouch: My Arm” from Sundance Theatre Lab at Mass MoCA Dec. 1 [Berkshire on Stage]

(North Adams, MA) Berkshire audiences will have the chance to preview a play when British playwright and performer Tim Crouch comes to MASS MoCA for a two-week residency as part of the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab. In conjunction with that visit, Crouch will present a staged reading of his play My Arm in MASS MoCA’s Club B-10 on Saturday, December 1, at 8 PM.

Crouch’s multimedia tale of a young boy who decides to permanently raise his hand into the air unfolds through a combination of live performance, digital film, and the animation of everyday objects supplied by the audience before each performance. Shirley Dent, of the Institute of Idea’s Culture Wars, praises an early production of My Arm: “Tim Crouch understands narrative, he knows what words will pull us in and what silences will keep us there.”
