Are We Not Human?

Are We Not Human?
Outfitted in ugly jumpsuits, hideous eyeglasses, and ridiculous hairdos, Keirin Brown and Ilana Gustafson Turner spend a brisk hour poking mostly wordless fun at the female experience. The duo, dubbed Duckbits, dance, fight, apply makeup, bird-watch, and let their freak flags fly in this ode to oddity. Though both women are skilled vaudevillian clowns, don't expect big bells and whistles. They strive for simple, unabashed silliness and hit their mark with ease. In the hands of these humanizing comediennes, bickering becomes a nonsensical act, companionship an urgent essential.

Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., L.A. Sat., June 11, 9:30 p.m.; Sat., June 18, 10 p.m.; Fri., June 24, 8 p.m.; Sat., June 25, 10 p.m.
