mourning after mornings



Inspired by early & contemporary death and grieving rituals, three archetypal female outcasts (facing their own aging bodies) tell an ancient story that is also the present. Narrative and time is constructed and deconstructed in cyclical reverie. This seasoned cast of performers (and younger ghosts) explore communal loss and mourning, reclaiming wildness, as they attend to the devastating, absurd, and sacred ways we come to care for bodies and ritualize endings. morning after mournings is being made in collaboration with Anna Azrieli, Rebecca Serrell, Maura Nguyen-Donohue, along with composer Leslie Alison, and lighting designer Kathy Couch.

Present and past collaborators on this work include: Mike Mikos, Aretha Aoki, Ryan MacDonald, Lindsay Head, Sunny Hit, Laura Rosentone, Jo Warren, Helen Messinio-Panjiris, and Orien Phelps.
