For one week, the inside of JACK is transformed into a tangled southern wilderness, inspired by photographs that dancer and choreographer Jennifer Harrison Newman found in the Library of Congress of her great-aunt, Geneva Varner Clark, and her family on their farm in Depression-era South Carolina. The photographs, taken by New Deal era photographer Marion Post Wolcott with captions such as negro, mixed race and Indian, provide more than simply a visual backdrop, inspiring an emotional and visceral conjuring of the ghosts of our shared social past. In collaboration with visionary director Charlotte Brathwaite, other-worldly composer Justin Hicks, singular installation artist Abigail DeVille, polymath projection designer Paul Lieber and lighting designer Tuce Yasak, Newman invites an inquiry into the politics of subjectivity and personhood by giving face to people marginalized by racial classifications and their economic ramifications. This dark, poetic piece questions what is revealed and what remains hidden by bringing light to that which was once buried.
