“The more I see in it, the more I fear. I don’t know what I don’t see—what I don’t fear!” Trapped somewhere between memory and nightmare, a lone governess weaves her chilling tale of a spectre haunting her wards in this prescient new interpretation of Henry James’ gothic classic. Conjuring a world in which truth is relative and trauma haunts our every step, The Builders Association (HOUSE / DIVIDED, 2012 Next Wave) under the direction of Marianne Weems employs clever stagecraft, media design, and seductive storytelling to defend the sanity of a woman, while holding the audience in her candlelit spell.

 

Co-commissioned by BAM and The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Co-produced by Arts Division of the University of California, Santa Cruz, and 3LD Art & Technology Center.
