Memory, technology, and documentation are crucial to both Krapp’s Last Tape (Samuel Beckett’s one-act, one-man play from 1958) and The Marnie Tape (an evolving thesis project by San Marcos-based artist Kellen Stanley), which act as two sides of a strange coin in Rewound: a night directed by Kellen Stanley. Internal dialogue and self-reflection also unite the two plays, which employ tapes to re-examine symbolic moments from the past. Presented as complementary works in one “double bill theatrical performance with sensory components,” Stanley’s Contemporary Art Month offering incorporates live actors and musicians as well as projections and recorded playback. $7, doors at 7pm, curtain at 7:30pm Wed, Mar 23; Thu, Mar 25; and Fri, Mar 26; TRANSIT: a cooperative for artists in transition, 1907 S St. Mary’s, (210) 464-7822, transitsa@me.com, contemporaryartmonth.com.
