WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this stunning portrait of a community, Naomi Iizuka weaves together historical fact, myth and memory to give voice to people who would otherwise exist only as faded images in an old photo album. Developed through extensive interviews and archival research, At The Vanishing Point conjures the rich history of Butchertown, a storied neighborhood minutes from downtown Louisville, once home to the stockyards and meatpacking plants that used to thrive on the banks of Beargrass Creek. How do we remember a part of our history at the moment that it's slipping away? How do we give voice to the ghosts that haunt us as individuals and as a community? Bringing together the stories of residents past and present, this unique theatrical event will be performed site-specifically in an industrial warehouse in the heart of Butchertown.
