Written and directed by Diana Small
With original pop songs by Diana Small
Who Knows What You Are is a dramatized song cycle, featuring original music, film, and theater. Centered around a high-stakes OB/GYN exam, interchanging female protagonists birth the world, are drafted for the war, plant pollinators, become entertainers, encounter death and choose love. It’s pop music and ocean forward.
This show emerged out of the constraints of the pandemic (what could collaborative artists create together while keeping physical distance?) and the existential question that emerged: When we give meaning & purpose to suffering, are we encouraging preventable suffering to persist? This show acknowledges and wrestles with the pain of the current moment, while also offering the hope that comes from choosing human connection against all odds.
