Heart Ripped Out Twice And So Can You! at Orlando Fringe
a (mostly) comedy about pain
Extended twice by popular demand after its lauded Philly premiere, HROTASCY! is a clown comedy set in the world between death and rebirth, and asks how we find hope in the midst of life’s terrible pain.
The “(mostly) comedy about pain” opens with an ebullient sales representative pitching the experience of existence to the audience, who is cast as a “floating, memoryless energy” between death and rebirth. As the clown educates the audience on the exciting adventure of being alive, hardships from Bond’s own life – including multiple hospitalizations and a difficult breakup – increasingly infiltrate the presentation, ultimately forcing Bond to directly confront the challenge of welcoming new humans into an often heartbreaking world.
From Philly’s Broad Street Review: “Time and effort can transform pain into art and laughter. Heart Ripped Out is the triumphant result of this alchemy…Witty and moving.”
Linnea Bond is a performance artist, actor, writer, director, and teacher who produces theatrical experiences with intentional social momentum. With degrees in Sociology, Acting, and Devising, her work explores apocalypse on a global, communal, and individual scale, including facing the looming reality of the climate crisis and our need for immediate comprehensive action.
