Michael Workman - Humans Are Beautiful
Surreal, meditative show from philosophical, esoteric intellect
This article is from 2011.
In this surreal, meditative show Workman spins an impressively sustained yarn about his journey through a warzone accompanied by a talking dog and his grave-digging love interest. His philosophical, esoteric intellect is tangible beneath the surface of the dreamlike narrative, but the main question when the hour is up is whether the performance is more theatre than comedy.
