Compelling experimental theatre is a rare commodity and the five year old Fort Point Theatre Channel goes all out with its new work Indiscreet Discretion. Described by one viewer as “unconventional, immediately engaging, tightly written, and difficult to describe without giving away spoilers. I particularly enjoyed the seamless integration of different art forms: theater, music, dance, and even sculpture. Before seeing the play, I couldn’t imagine how these disparate elements could be brought together, but it was done in such a self-reinforcing way that it never felt forced or awkward.”

Fort Point Theatre Channel’s playwright and co-artistic director Silvia Graziano’s new work takes a deep, dark look at our ego and id, and the battle between our human and animal impulses in Indiscreet Discretion, running in Boston from June 15-23, 2012.

This premiere production is a chilling story of a trio of characters whose paths cross with surreal results. A big city writer is holed up with his lover in the country and as they discuss his upcoming murder story, a stranger comes upon their house, seemingly the victim of some kind of accident. The three people share secrets, but the inevitable battle for control leads to the question of where their stories of sex and violence will end. The actors will be joined on stage by a pair of dancers from the Contrapose Dance Company and musician Brendan Burns, who composed the score for play.
