Cherdonna's new show, Clock that Mug or Dusted, which opened last weekend and plays through this weekend, is an hour long, with a glorious, hilarious first half, and a tedious, messy second half. The second half was so excruciating it blocked out my memory of the first half. Frustrated, I grumbled to someone as I was leaving, "Why was that so boring?" and overheard someone else saying, "I felt like I was in 1965." It is entirely possible that if I were more educated on the history of feminist performance art in the '60s and '70s, I would have had a richer response to this work. Instead, my patience was fried and I left feeling frustrated. That said, there's a bit about peanut butter and banana sandwiches that will stay with me, along with a moment in the show when she's digging around for props under the area where the audience sits, and her digging around is lit up, projecting out onto the stage and casting shadows on the back wall of the set—shadows with strangenesses worthy of Plato's cave.
