Alexandra Chasin and Zishan Ugurlu’s Fragments, Lists & Lacunae is a multi-media production focusing on three college students who are grappling with their own blind spots as well as the (resonant) concepts in a course entitled “Fragments, Lists, & Lacunae.” In each scene, a professor presents material on absence, silence, negation and nothingness; examples range from the 18-minute gap in Nixon’s White House tapes, to Sappho’s poetry, Swiss cheese, and the politics of “disappearance.” On both conceptual and subjective planes, students, professor, and audience re-think – and re-experience – presence. At the center of these students’ education is their Professor, played by seminal queer theorist and writer Judith Butler.
