EARLY SHAKER SPIRITUALS: A RECORD ALBUM INTERPRETATION
The newest Wooster Group work, EARLY SHAKER SPIRITUALS: A RECORD ALBUM INTERPRETATION is a performance based on a 1976 LP of Shaker hymns, marches, anthems and testimony recorded by Sister R. Mildred Barker and the sisters of the Shaker community in Sabbathday Lake, Maine.

Cynthia Hedstrom, Elizabeth LeCompte, Frances McDormand and Suzzy Roche channel the voices of the Shaker singers on the album to give a new live rendering to their songs. Complementing the songs are dances composed of simple patterns inspired by surviving fragments of the ecstatic dance that characterized Shaker worship. For the dances, the singers are joined by Matthew Brown, Modesto Jimenez, Bobby McElver, Bebe Miller and Andrew Schneider.

EARLY SHAKER SPIRITUALS returns to an artistic practice that the Group has used throughout its history: working with record albums as source material for original productions, among them HULA (1981) and L.S.D. (JUST THE HIGH POINTS) (1984). The piece also expresses the Group's long-standing interest in the Shakers, a millenarian, celibate, communitarian sect.

In addition to the performers, the full EARLY SHAKER SPIRITUALS ensemble includes Max Bernstein (sound), Enver Chakartash (costumes), Jim Clayburgh (set), Bill Kennedy (technical director), Elizabeth LeCompte (set), Bobby McElver (sound), Jamie Poskin (assistant director), Emily Rea (production manager), Ryan Seelig (lighting), Jennifer Tipton (lighting) and Kate Valk (director).
