Big Game is a truly syncretic event, with images and sounds from such diverse sources as 1920's cartoons, exposé shows, film noir and Vodoun. "The Farce" was originally a relatively simple one-act play by Georges Feydeau entitled "Gibier de Potence." Translated and ruthlessly adapted it to suit Synaesthetic's agenda, modern Media interludes written by the actors -- news shows, commercials, gameshows, 'Cops' take-offs, etc. – intertwine with the adultery/murder news story in the farce plot. Kristi Leigh Herman as the Host alternately connects and interrupts the media and plot segments with musings on the implications of modern television.
