WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this hour-long, non-traditional viewing experience, audiences move through the installed performance like an art gallery - listening, watching and touching isolated moments from the Jenkins farm in the same physical space as the performers. A composite of home movies, interviews, historical images, and dancers shot on the actual North Carolina farm, the video component weaves in and out of the live choreography, text, and music. Video images and voices of Glenn and Jeannette Jenkins, both of whom suffer from paranoid schizophrenia, provide conflicting narratives and a theatrical framework for the video collage that fills the fractured surfaces of the sculptural set. The dynamic integration of dance and theater plays within, against, and around an original bluegrass-blues-hymn-folk-inspired score by Chicago composers Matt Reed and Colby Beserra.
