2016 Guggenheim Fellow Christina Masciotti (VISION DISTURBANCEADULT) returned to Abrons Arts Center with her latest work, RAW BACON FROM POLAND. For shoe salesman and aspiring personal trainer, Dennis Toledo, a lifetime of trouble assumes a new intensity after a bad tour in Iraq. Though he’s managed to anesthetize the enduring wounds of that service with prescription drug abuse, when he’s arrested on a domestic violence charge and sentenced to Brooklyn Treatment Court, he’s forced to find new ways to handle his volatile tangle of mixed emotions. Further upheaval with his wife leaves him perched on the edge of recovery with an all-consuming drive to win full custody of his six-year-old daughter.
