The Bumps
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:


August 14th and 15th at 7:30pm

A love letter to ephemerality, The Bumps is a play about waiting, made for a cast of pregnant performers. The piece follows the story of three pregnant strangers in a waiting room, and then picks up a generation later to follow their daughters in a water aerobics class. It asks: How does each of us grapple with the unknown? What do we inherit from our parents? And why do people give unsolicited health tips? Interwoven throughout the play in atmospheric interludes, actors reflect on their present experiences. Behind the scenes, the play seeks to reimagine the infrastructure of theatre from the ground up - redesigning the rehearsal, production and performance processes to center around the needs of pregnant actors and families.

By Rachel Kauder Nalebuff
Directed by Deena Selenow
Featuring Taifa Harris*, Jessica Luck*, Jennifer Blood*, Eric Clem*, Cotton Wright*

The Bumps runs 75 minutes and will be performed without an intermission.

Nominated to the KILROYS 2016 List, The Bumps received its first public staging at The Skirball Cultural Centers inaugural Performance Lab Festival (2017), through The Skirballs National Performance Network Residency. The project has received additional developmental support from the Hammer Museum (2016/17), the Women's Center for Creative Work (2016), and Moskowitz Bayse Gallery (2016) and was developed with director Deena Selenow and artists Celia Hollander, Jennie Liu, Lena Sands and Shannon Scrofano.
