“In the Boudoir” – Summer Shapiro – 2012 NY Clown Theatre Festival

From the 2012 NY Clown Theatre Festival Brochure

“Matters of the heart can be messy and In The Boudoir delights in making a mess. San Francisco comedienne Summer Shapiro, returns to the New York Clown Theatre Festival for her fourth time with this deceptively simple story of a young female clown’s love life. Veering erratically and erotically between exactitude and befuddlement, control and rashness, beauty and broken, Shapiro plays with the consuming need to be liked and revels in the futility of such a hunger.”

Summer Shapiro upsets the scene with clown like absurdity.

Summer finds a volunteer audience member to partake in her festivities.
