ACTING OUT: WORDS THAT CONNECT
March 29th – July 27th, 2014
A series of performances of original works written or composed with the art in mind. The first set of performances is on March 29th and 30th with a play by Vicki Addesso, Susan Hodara, Joan Potter and Lori Toppel and a performance by Lisa Karrer with David Simons.
FIRST SHOWS: SATURDAY MARCH 29TH, 7 – 9PM AND SUNDAY MARCH 30TH, 5 – 7PM
The following works will be performed both evenings
Under the thirty foot wings of Jeffrey Schrier’s installation Unfinished Flight, Vicki Addesso, Susan Hodara, Joan Potter, and Lori Toppel present Still Here, a performance piece adapted from their collaborative memoir, “Still Here Thinking of You: A Second Chance With Our Mothers” (Big Table Publishing, 2013). Like the artwork — a powerful assemblage of more than one million aluminum can tabs, transformed into a cohesive work. Still Here is a collection of bits and pieces transformed into a cohesive work.
In their book the authors tell the stories of their relationships with their mothers, from their early childhoods to their mothers’ later years. In Still Here they interweave short passages from these stories to create an interplay of different personalities and circumstances, yet surprisingly common emotional experiences. Spinning their distinct memories into a thematic pastiche, the writers create a chorus that is — like Schrier’s sculpture, like their memoir, and like the complex mother-daughter relationship itself — simultaneously a patchwork of small moments and a unified and evocative narrative.
