Viscerally Real

June 10, 2018

A most painful slice of life you can’t help but wish to know more, more slices of the cake. Wounded by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm unravels lives before the audience revealing the bare pains underneath. Wounded is the breath before bottom, half a step before you look up and hope for better.

Wounded begins with those most awkward moments of all things new, those moments you are unsure and eager simply radiate out of Samuel (Kyle Felts). Kyle maintained a tension like an overly taught string trying to loosen just enough to resonate with beauty and clarity. Such life in a character is truly what is great about theater, that energy you can feel coming from a pulse on stage modulating how you feel for the duration.

Wounded builds intensity through the whole story, while unwinding the characters and audience, pulling them deeper into these tense painful pulsing, though invisible, wounds. Tommy (Scott Kuza) physically acted with such depth you could let go of yourself and feel his wounds, his pains. The ultimate looseness compared to Kyle’s tense portrayal. All balanced between Angelica (Jessie Holder Tourtellotte). As Kyle and Scott applied the ebb and flow of polar needs, Jessie became this emotional fulcrum, supplied the energies the other triad fed upon. The men were high and low, while Angelica is the beat which sways between them.

 

I won’t say more, Wounded (written by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm Directed by Liz Lanier) is a must see this Fringe. Go, now!
