ABOUT THIS SHOW:
As children we imagine adulthood will set us free; as adults we long for the freedom of childhood. Genesis’s new work digs into the messiness, loneliness, and wonder of our younger years through ridiculous reenactments, earnest recitations, ghostly conjurings, wild dance parties, and our favorite childhood snacks.
Conceived & Created by Amanda Dunne Acevedo & Lindsey Barlag Thornton
Devised & Performed with Carol Crosby, Levi Donnell, Jordan Harris, Alex Hovi, Pat King, Claire Saxe
Production Designer: Li-Ming Hu
Movement Director: Nora Sharp
Genesis is an artistic partnership between Amanda Dunne Acevedo and Lindsey Barlag Thornton. Hybridizing theatre, performance art and dance, Genesis’s work experiments with the boundaries of various live performance forms. Through collaborative and interdisciplinary experimentation, Genesis creates performance that intentionally considers space and audience. Genesis values curiosity, discovery and passion in our artistic practice and relationships.
