What do you see? This is the usual question when you see an abstract painting. It is also the same question being ask by psychiatrist when he/she is conducting the Rorschach test better known as the inkblot test.
The play is a 2-person act about a real-life impressionist Mark Rothko played by Bart Guingona. The story has two characters for the whole duration of the production and it only happened in one place: Rothko's studio.
It deals with how people perceives the world and interpret it. You may see it as color red but other people may give a different perception. The relationship of Rothko and his fictional opposite is more like a master and apprentice.
In the old days, the best way to succeed and learn is from experience with a mentor to guide just like Rothko did with his apprentice. Actors' Actor is the company that brought you this production. Inquire at CCP for the playdates.
