What are critics saying about ARTICULATION?
Cesi Davidson’s short plays are swift but indelible, both light and enlightening, their profound human truths conveyed with power and originality. Each piece assembles an intriguing, often whimsical or fantastic cast of characters (a young man and his dream mothers, two guardians standing watch on a pregnant woman’s belly, a ripening banana and its peel…) and gives them unbridled voice. The result is a series of interactions that embody fresh takes on the conundrums, the alienations and vulnerabilities – including those of race and class and gender and sexuality – of contemporary life. We’re awakened to our own ability to express our experiences, to feel our pain and that of others, to persevere.
