Synopsis: Within the folds of the zona pellucida, rapt in a somnambulous state, the accused begins to believe she is capable of the crimes with which she has been charged, and that perhaps, somehow, she has indeed carried out the horrific transgressions herself. Zona Pellucida, multimedia theater piece by, was performed as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title CORPOLÍTICAS en las Américas: Formaciones de Raza, Clase y Género / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender. (Aaron Pollard and Stephen Lawson) is a theater and cabaret duo based in Montréal, Canada. Their multimedia performance pieces often incorporate video projections, soundscapes, found and original music scores, transgendered apparitions, outrageous costume, props, vocal/textual works, and the art of lip-sync. The video includes a post-performance discussion with the artists, moderated by Ramón Rivera-Servera.
