Alina Konon makes her Hollywood Fringe debut with her solo show, "Brainwashed."

Alina brings her personal experiences from living in Belarus under a brutal regime to the stage. Her dark comedy explores the surreal and disturbing reality of growing up under dictatorship. Through a series of absurd clown bits, she engages the audience in the process of brainwashing. The show features a mix of bizarre elements, including live cooking of soup, which is shared with the audience, creating an interactive and intimate setting.

Alina's performance is both silly and vulnerable, as she sets out to convince the audience of a lie, establish dominance, and reveal the harsh realities of life under dictatorship. Through clowning and interactive pieces Alina explores psychological manipulation and control experienced in oppressive environments.

Directed by Nathan Mohebbi.
