Proving, once again, that Canada is vastly superior to America in every conceivable way, Israeli-turned-Canadian lighting designer Itai Erdal has teamed up with Vancouver, BC theater company Chop Theatre. The result is How to Disappear Completely, a one-man, multimedia performance about the death of Erdal’s mother—a literature professor—from lung cancer. BUT WAIT! Yes, it sounds like it would be awful and depressing, but reports (from Canadians, who are generally far smarter than us) indicate that How to Disappear Completely is quite the opposite—emotionally draining, sure, and discomfortingly personal, but also moving and funny and bereft of theater’s actorly tropes.
