About this show

Jack & With the Cotillan is a performance that considers the metric-less damages of being in prison: not the time one has served, but the measure of one's dreaming that is given to the state. The performance explores markers of transition and transformation, and draws on aspirational class stories like those in The Honeymooners and Amos & Andy; the paintings of Agnes Martin, Ellen Gallagher, and Ruth Azawa; tigers in Harlem; John Canoe traditions; and the mirroring and mimicry found in African American dance pageantry of the late 19th century. The main character Jack whirls through a dance — part dream, part ritual — re-entering his own internal life.
