Porfirio / Small Suitcases
by John Kauffman
Two stories by John Kauffman. Small Suitcases is a dreamy, violent horror show that plays out in a small town. A harsh, beautiful, devastating opera about family, heredity, destiny, human nature, identity, love. In Porfirio we follow a drifter's reflections upon his egregious past and deeds as he crosses the California desert to confront a former acquaintance. An intricate, metaphysical vision.
