Keren Cytter: Show Real Drama

The real-life experiences of two actors, Susie Meyer and Fabian Stumm, inspired Keren Cytter's 2011 mixed-media play, Show Real Drama, which explores the lives of a pair of actors after they graduate from the University of Acting in Salzburg, Germany. Meyer and Stumm appear as out-of-work actors, who are completely cut off from the entertainment business in continental Europe. They don't have real scenes to use as examples of their performances, so they join forces to create fictional scenes for their show reels. Keren, who also directs this performance, mixes filmed scenes with the live performances.

Show Real Drama, in its final staging after a tour that included stops at Tate Modern, The Kitchen, and Kunsthall Bergen, is presented in conjunction with the exhibition ''Keren Cytter: Video Art Manual,'' the first ever major institutional survey of Cytter's art that's currently on display at DiverseWorks.
Oct. 10-13, 7:30 p.m., 2012
