WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

At a time when more votes are cast for American Idol than a presidential election, An American Rendition explores our moral paralysis in the face of secret detention and extraordinary rendition alongside our national obsession with TV reality shows. A provocative commentary on an explosive topic, this powerful piece uses integrated text, movement, and extended vocal techniques to depict the story of an American citizen who is kidnapped by our government, interrogated and tortured in a secret prison while we stay glued to the tube following our favorite models, pop stars, and fashion queens. This production celebrates Jane Comfort & Company's thirty years of making dance theater.
