Polylogues is a funny, interview-based solo show that explores real people’s experiences with nonmonogamy—and love in all its forms. Writer/performer Xandra Clark is less like an actor and more like a medium, listening on headphones to the interviews as she performs them. By providing anonymity to each interviewee, she channels voices that could never be heard if the storytellers’ identities were known. Though a solo show, Polylogues forges a living polyamorous community on the stage with a diverse set of voices—from a senior citizen who’s been poly for decades to a child worried about her open parents; from liberals in a commune to conservative evangelical swingers; and from the newly empowered to folks critical of how nonmonogamy perpetuates patriarchy and white supremacy. Polylogues examines what 21st century folks want in relationships, what we’re afraid of, and the ways in which tradition attempts to contain us.
Excerpts have been shown at The Flea, Judson Church, Queer Abstract/Starr Bar, Caveat, Theaterlab, Undiscovered Countries/Bizarre Bushwick, The Green Room, numerous house shows, and even an engagement party...
As a 2018-19 Queer|Art Fellow in Performance, Xandra is continuing to develop Polylogues through 2019 and beyond.
