Description: Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is an artistic attempt to perform 30 two-minute plays, selected at random in front of the audience’s eyes.

With an aesthetic that draws upon Dada, Surrealism and the work of the original Italian Futurists, the single unifying element of the short plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty.

This experimental theatre company’s co-artistic director, Kurt Chiang, is a graduate of UMD’s School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies. But would you expect anything less?
