Our Shoes Are Red/The Performance Lab


A new play inspired by the writing of Jorge Luis Borges


Babel 6 (3)

Developed by Matt DiBiasio in collaboration with Andrew Shaughnessy and The Company.

Directed by Devon Roberts

Featuring Ben Roberts, Pat Janowski, Matt DiBiasio, and Clara Navaille

The play:   At an unknown location in a room outside of time, four nameless characters investigate a series of strange accounts. From the mean streets of gangland New York to the jungle ruins of a lost god, from spy-games during World War 1 to mind games in an endless library, join our intrepid heroes as they navigate multiple mind-bending narratives: stories both literary and labyrinthine, pulp-drenched and metaphysical, prosaic and poetic.
