By Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Hutch Pimentel*

FFT kicked off its second season with Polaroid Stories, Naomi Iizuka's masterful mash-up of Roman myth and documentary theatre, directed by then FFT Artistic Producer, Hutch Pimentel. Polaroid Stories,an explosive re-imagining of Ovid's Metamorphoses, blended interviews from street-based youth and sex workers with ancient myth. The production took place in the underbelly of a city where junkies scheme, lovers run and the lost wander. It was a refuge for those living on the edge of society. In her script, Iizuka illuminates the depths of a metropolis with her chaotic elegy of desire, desperation and transcendence. FFT's production explored the complex intersection of two different modes of storytelling, documentary and mythology, and the power of their confluence. The design aesthetic embraced a similar method of re-imagining technologies and materials for new use.
