Every house has a door
21st Century Performance
This is not a dream
Created for the Art Institute's Fullerton Hall and on the occasion of Revoliutsiia! Demonstratsiia!, this performance loosely enacts a collection of international events from 1917—including references to Buster Keaton, Gertrude Stein, and W.E.B. Du Bois—all enacted alongside Constructivist set designs.
This is not a dream considers performance as a machine to generate echoes between 1917 and 2017, to ask what has and has not changed, and what ghosts of unfulfilled revolutions populate the stage.
