[assimulation]
by Sarah Myers
Directed by Jaclyn Pryor

Written and performed by Sarah Myers and directed by Jaclyn Pryor, [assimulation] is a solo piece that explores the intersections of ethnic and sexual trauma through fragmented narrative, iconic image, movement, gesture, and sound. It is a journey through the landscape of memory and sensation--one granddaughter's navigation of her paradoxical inheritance.

HABITUALLY ME
In the comic monologue Habitually Me, 49-year old writer/performer Ben Prager is in his mid-life crisis. The clock is ticking, the sun is setting and Mr. Prager worries that he has spent a lifetime of improperly flossing his teeth. In Ben Prager's world the cup is neither half empty nor half full but merely a potential breeding ground for water borne illness.

Mr. Prager attempts to summon the energy to present a show about his lackluster life since taking an actual stab at life would be way too exhausting. Habitually Me invites the audience into a comic look at a life of mediocre accomplishments and paralyzing indecision.

Writer/Performer Ben Prager has written five one-man shows of character monologues. Most recently his show "Ben Prager" was performed at the FronteraFest 2004 and was selected "Best of the Fest." Previously Ben's one-man shows have been performed in the Seattle area at the Empty Space Theater, New City Theater, Tacoma Actors Guild, On the Boards, Bumbershoot Arts Festival and at EXPO '86 in Vancouver, B.C. Ben's monologue STRAT was aired on PBS's Spotlight Series for the Arts.
