THE EMOTIONS OF NORMAL PEOPLE

SWAIN HALL AT UNC, CHAPEL HILL

THURSDAY, DEC. 3–SATURDAY, DEC. 19

On a night ride in East Germany, a woman remembers what her family called "Our Radioactive Christmas." Later, a German man notes the moment, during the Cold War, when he realized he'd save his sister first if the A-bomb fell: "Now, many years later, my sister has grown up. She has had many personal A-bombs in her life, and I have not been able to protect her from a single one. And I have a daughter of my own. We'll see how I do." More than a year in the making, this Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern production mixes original narrative and movement with live music and a score by Kraftwerk and others to explore domestic life and other psyops in the German Democratic Republic. Can its characters can find the Stasi agent in their homes—or their beds? What's it like to be a spy in the house of love—and be in love in a house of spies? Find out in this production, a part of the UNC Performance Studies season. 8 p.m., $5$17,
