LA FIEBRE / THE FEVER

s

fever

 

 

 

 

The Fever seeks to subvert the complacent conscience of the globalized traveling Westerner/American sitting in the audience through a long-established process of empathy and identification, which is, however, devoid of either classical catharsis or a consensus-building, feel-good resolution. Instead, The Fever is an essay-monologue which seeks to contaminate the reader-spectator with that exotic ethical fever the traveler has picked up in a foreign country. As such, it is an infectious text, reader beware.

WALLACE SHAWN (New York, 1943) is an American playwright, actor, and essayist. Born in a family of influential journalists and educated at Harvard and Oxford, Shawn has become a central voice of contemporary non-commercial drama. His work as a comic character and voice actor for mainstream cinema (The Princess Bride, Clueless, The Incredibles and Toy Story, among others) has often obscured his significant contribution to modern-day drama with titles such as My Dinner with André, The Designated Mourner, Aunt Dan and Lemon, or Grasses of a Thousand Colors. These contrasting facets are a testament to his versatility as an actor and his wide range of voices and personae —his life-long commitment to the performing arts.

KATARZYNA ROGOWICZ (Poland, 1971) is a multifaceted artist, textile designer, and illustrator of children and teenage books. The idea that anything can trigger our feelings, and above all, those feelings that hibernate in our most inaccessible inner core, is the key to understand her most recent creative work. She has a name for these: "White rabbits." These are objects, stimuli that appear unexpectedly and resolve in a duplicate form. The text by Wallace Shawn The Fever, was one of them. During the creative process of illustrating this book, Katarzyna (Kasia) evoked the fever incited by the protagonist's fictitious pain, by the collective pain of others, by inherited pain… that deaf, dormant, hibernating pain.
