Itch in the Stitch

ITCH IN THE STITCH

Itch in the Stitch – a work for one body, two minds and a tub of lard – explores the subject of self-image, gluttony, and obsession. Pushing the envelope past the obvious stereotypes, the solo work performed in a fat suit takes audiences on a journey past the superficiality of a “skin” that is eventually shed, down to the character’s inner core.

Itch in the Stitch spits out chunks of unsettling revelations. It is a pilgrimage of struggle, self-revelation, and ultimate liberation. Like knowledge that can be tasted but not swallowed, or yearning for liberation that seeks to understand the nature of enslavement – powerful and raw, the work is like an itch that can’t be scratched.

Like knowledge that can be tasted, but not swallowed…yearning to be liberated, yet seeking to understand that which enchains…powerful and raw…like an itch that cannot be scratched…
Kimiko Shimoda, OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
