Temporary Distortion's Americana Kamikaze is mentioned again in The New
"The future of horror onstage may lie in multimedia; some of the most
interesting work is being done by Temporary Distortion, whose hit show
last year, “Americana Kamikaze,” paid homage to Japanese horror movies.
It was neither spare nor bloody. Instead, Kenneth Collins’s staging
juxtaposed direct address monologues from ramrod-still actors with
elegant video that showed horrific violence in graphic detail. Its
clever solution was to in effect outsource the dirty business to video."
