A collaboration between PETE (Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble) artists, Jacob Coleman & Amber Whitehall, and NYC multi-media artist, Jenny Vogel - ON KILLING is a portrait of the loss-of-self common to FALLING IN LOVE and FIGHTING IN WAR - an expression of the violence and passion in both affairs, the feeling of numbness that results in their endings, and the searching, again, for a way to feel alive. THE PLAY unfolds in a series of fragments, tangle of memories, grainy black and white video, decaying voices from old tape recordings, a story told on moving trains, dancing in empty city squares. It is about the inexplicable longing that drives us to seek new loves and fight new wars.
