Men! Feelings! Psychological Theory! All come into play in Per Haaland's latest filmed conceptual theater piece, 'The Affect Theory', which delves into the subconscious realms of human behavior and the myriad ways thought and emotion manifest in our physical expressions. Based on Silvan Tomkins' ground breaking psychological treatise, The Affect Theory uses song, dance, comedy theater and spoken word to bring Tomkins' theories about human affects to the stage. In the same confessional spirit of self-reflection Per Haaland has brought to so many of his other works, The Affect Theory provides us with a rich tapestry of inner dialog and repressed emotions - each personified onstage by Haaland's collection of hooded hobgoblins. Cutting edge theater meets cutting edge psychology - at last!
