As Wevers’ company embodied their fractured archetypes, moving through moments of discord and connection, pain and hope, Chaplin’s words allowed what had at first seemed like a lighthearted piece to grow into something much sadder and more human. From a surprising live-music cue to a particularly poignant gender-swapped pas de deux between Peil and Birts, watching “Silent Scream” is like watching a sweeping anti-fascist ballet in the space of a single scene, a sad and awful and funny and stubbornly uncynical sign of the times — which is what the best art should be.

“Silent Scream” is a nuanced, moving and stunning exploration of gender identity, self-examination and the struggle to repossess our common humanity in a time of fear and discord.

The hope this work has is palpable and it thrives in the simplicity of its storytelling.
