Guernica

ABOUT

A dark and fetid depiction of mans’ challenge to exhume its humanity from a time of destruction and alienation, Guernica follows three lost souls thru a unique and ghastly absurd theatrical experience of cyclical violence. From an original scenario/physical imagery created by Magdalena Kazubowski-Houston, Guernica combines Magda’s “Illustrative Performing Technique” with influences from Picasso’s nightmare impressionistic painting (of the same title).
