Widely talented artist Keren Cytter is the mastermind writer and director behind Show Real Drama, which has a storylinereflecting the lives of two of her actors facing unemployment following graduation from the University of Acting in Salzburg, Germany. After numerous failed attempts at employment, performers Susie Meyer and Fabian Stumm decided to write a script for two scenes to be acted out in the future. These two showreel scenes in the play function as the brakes between the act Show, act Real, and act Drama. While in the front of the stage, their text is referring to the stage and their acting career; while their placement is in the center of the stage, they are reenacting their showreel or past dialogues; and while in the back of the stage, their text is referring to their relationships and memories.
In addition to the play, Keren Cytter also presents, with Mia Meyer, an exhibition– Keren Cytter: Video Art Manual– which is on view in the DiverseWorks gallery until October 20. The video exhibition features the U.S. premiere of ‘Vengeance’ and represents Cytter’s debut in Houston along with her first major institutional survey in the United States.
