Set in the year 2014, Woodbury's piece follows a young "ethno-femino-dance anthropologist" who travels to post-quake, post-drought Los Angeles to research her 10,000 page dissertation on "The History of the World, as Told by Loose Women." Her final subject is the 108 year-old legendary stripper Desmond "Nani" Reese.
Woodbury is the recipient the inaugural Spalding Gray Award, and her other works include WHATEVER and Tale of 2Cities: An American Joyride on Multiple Tracks, for which she won the 2007 Obie Award for Ensemble Performance.For more information, call 312-335-1650 or visit steppenwolf.org.
