WHERE THE BLUE GRASS GROWS...and so ad infinitum

Director / Choreographer

Loosely following the brother Kapeck's The Insect Play, woven into dialogue with other Central European texts including; The Power of the Powerless  by Vaclav Havel, Too Loud a Solitude by Hrabel, and Dita Saxova by Lustig, the piece questions censorship, waste, and individuality on personal, familial, and political levels. 

Set in a junkyard with music that mixes a live rock band with esoteric spinning and projected film, the audiences shares the performance space creating their own seats out of discarded junk. The performers weave throughout engaging in highly physical movement with various objects, painting an entire wall with graffiti, writing poems all over each others bodies, and filling every inch of the space with garbage that audience and performers alike must crawl through.
