Adult Documentary
2016, The Chocolate Factory Theater

In Adult Documentary five performers share their real and imagined histories.  The distortion of text and body attempts to address the relationship between form and trauma or conversely the trauma of form. How does the so-called “aboutness” and shape of a word or gesture disrupt meaning and how does the form i.e., repetition, space and time rupture or repair these seemingly hermetic relationships.
