Let’s Start With The Obvious is a one-act play for two performers, with Johanna Hedva starring as “A Hero” and Marcus Kuiland-Nazario as “Her Arch-nemesis.” Their lines are a transcription and impersonation two YouTube compilations of the greatest movie insults and threats of all time. At the origin of the first dramatic conflict ever told, there was a protagonist and an antagonist: they tried to communicate; they miscommunicated.

Since this 20 minute play quickly escalates into a frenzy of rage and unbridled epithets, Guru Rugu will be on hand afterward to lead everyone in an calming meditation session. Guru Rugu is a celebrated best-selling self-published self-helper from Los Angeles who has changed the lives of millions with his simple but effective experimental meditations. He has worked with many other illustrious experimental healers, artists, and writers, including Veranda Moot and Matador Oven. With artist Adam Overton he co-founded the experimental meditation center of Los Angeles, and currently hosts Guru Rugu’s Experimental Meditation Hour every 1st Sunday, 10-11pm on KCHUNG Radio AM1630 Chinatown, Los Angeles and online at http://kchungradio.org.
