Folk Incest (World Premiere)

October 9-20, 2018

In Folk Incest five women interrogate seemingly unrepresentable subject matters including the Holocaust, sexual trauma, and the fetishization of young girls. As pop cultural references, genres, and bodily traumas compress into one another, the work’s biting humor offers catharsis, simultaneously critiquing and supporting abstraction. Folk Incest is choreographed, written, and directed by Juliana F. May. Performed by Leslie Cuyjet, Tess Dworman, Lucy Kaminsky, Molly Poerstel, and Rebecca Wender, with music by Tatyana Tenenbaum, lighting by Madeline Best, and costumes by Mariana Valencia.
