After a very successful run at the New York International Fringe Festival, Homo Sapiens Interruptus took part in the Fringe Encore Series at the SoHo Playhouse in 2016.

Carlos Dengler takes us on a journey of origins in his exciting monologue, Homo Sapiens Interruptus. Deskside, a la Spalding Gray, Carlos recounts his adolescent discovery of the heavy metal music of Megadeth and Metallica, and how the spirit of his headbanging youth paved the way for his career as a founding member of the band Interpol.

The monologue interweaves Carlos’ musical journey with a mystical evocation of human origins. Intelligent and heartfelt, Carlos’ story explores how youthful obsession often, and heartbreakingly, shatters against ineluctable currents of change and adulthood.
