Krushveski Studio Theatre, El Paso, 2021
Keeping Distance is a technically innovative new comedy about the coronavirus and the isolation it has created. The play features a single live actor interacting with all other characters via screens – interrogating the notion that screens are an effective substitute for human contact. In an unusual structure for academia, all performers in the premier performance were compensated and the production was underwritten by a Liberal Arts CEA grant.
