Crime. Drama. Murder. We watch the death of others again and again either as entertainment, media news fodder, or as a collective nightmare. What is it that attracts us so strongly to these ceaseless depictions of untimely demise and bloody crime?

In Goggles, Tara Cheyenne Performance's comic creep-fest, a mystery unfolds.

Obsession, bone-chilling fear, and black comedy translate into disturbingly compelling physicality and the sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious voice of Goggles.Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg acts, dances, and inhabits this character and brings him to life and death before your unsuspecting eyes!

Created and performed by Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg

Directed by Sophie Yendole

Original Music: Marc Stewart

Lighting Design: James Proudfoot

…a character worthy of our prayers. He may be dead inside, but on the stage he is anything but, brought to life by Friedenberg’s mighty talent.
