About the Work

Grant Jacoby’s "wish you were here." is a post-modern dream ballet that meditates on fragmented memory, sudden loss, and Trisha Brown's Newark. On an interpersonal level, the dance intends to explore what is gained and lost as we move further away from past events that haunt us. How might we step back into a physical and psychological space to unpack what once was, what has dissipated, and what still lingers?

Liz Charky’s "You Are What You Eat And I'm Hungry" is an experimental embodiment that screams and whispers the collective histories that help us make sense of everything we see and consume. The performers use verbatim theatre from their personal interviews, which cover topics ranging from memories about food and family, to descriptions of what the inside of their brains and bellies look like, to their aspirations and the imagined future memories that they hold.
