El Gato Teatro

Heistman

at The Ohio Theater, July 2008

Heistman is stuck—inside the bank he is robbing with his henchmen, inside his own tortured head, and in between the feeling that he can never have success or love.  The cops are surrounding the joint and have no answers.  The hostages do.  Drawing elements from Dog Day Afternoon and The Unabomber Manifesto, Heistman uses dance and theater to look inside the soul of a man obsessed with the idea of failure.
