Histrionic History

Dirck Toll on stageDirck Toll’s solo stage shows uniquely combine the immediacy of theater, the adventurousness of performance art, the intelligence of literature, and the energy of stand-up comedy. With unexpected twists of ideas and behavior, Toll deftly uses words and movement to single-handedly act out multi-character stories and performance pieces of mind-jolting humor that take the audience to strange places with unusual people in bizarre situations.
