Piece Her Together
What makes a person who she is? Who does she seek to become? What objects in her world help her get there? What forces conspire to stop her? How do those around her influence how she is perceived? Piece Her Together features soprano Amanda DeBoer Bartlett in a fully-staged theatrical production of two mono-dramatic works: Eliza Browns The Body of the State, a portrayal of Juana of Castile's imprisonment at the hands of her family which subverts the trope of the madwoman, and Katherine Youngs When stranger things happen, a noir meditation on loss, myths of femininity, and the potential of the imagination.

Brown collaborated on the libretto for The Body of the State with members of a graduate class at the Indiana Womens Prison, whose recorded voices contribute to the electronic soundworld of the piece. Meanwhile, Youngs work is inspired by Kelly Links The Girl Detective, whose investigation takes her into dreams and down into an underworld where lost things accumulate, generating lists of misplaced, missing, found, and untethered objects.

Collaborators include Emmi Hilger (Director); Meriem Bahri (costume design); Kera MacKenzie (video design); and Nicholas Schwartz (scenic design).
