Oct 17—Oct 20, 2018
 
Theater

Kaneza Schaal
In collaboration with Cornell Alston and Christopher Myers

 

How can internal life be rebuilt after trauma? Theater artist Kaneza Schaal joins forces with actor Cornell Alston and artist Christopher Myers to consider reentry into society after prison. From corrections to cotillion, JACK & conjures social codes and rites, debutante balls, John Canoe performances from the Caribbean, 1950s sitcoms, minimalist feminist painters, and late 19th-century African-American dance pageantry to consider the unmeasurable damages of being imprisoned— not the time one has served, but the measure of one’s dreaming that is given to the state.

 

Design and text by Christopher Myers
