Directed by Hand2Mouth Artistic Director PCC alumnae Jonathan Walters

Dekalog is an original new performance based on an award-winning series of short films. The play, set in an apartment complex in contemporary Portland, tells stories of the residents’ lives as they become subtly intertwined, facing emotional dilemmas that are at once deeply personal and universally human. Each story draws from one of the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration as the residents grapple deftly with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time.
