reveries and elegies
reveries and elegies
is Mary Armentrout's current site specific performance project
  - a shifting, wandering, accumulating, de-accumulating installation
that is trying to deal with a shifting, ungraspable subject:
                                change, loss, dislocation

life is so strange, life is so strange - it's always changing and always staying
the same

I promise the show will be different every night
I promise the show will be special every night
I promise that you won't see ALL the shows (even if you come to each and every one)
(life is so strange, life is so strange)
-you WANT to be in control
-you WANT to have it all
(you secretly yearn to run into the fact that you're not in control at all)
(you secretly yearn to be released into the knowledge that life is ungraspable - not only
        by everyone else, but also by you)

last winter there were 9 shows at four different spaces in the Bay Area and one in Louisiana, as the show meandered through the national landscape, AND, since those shows all SOLD OUT, there will be 8 more shows here in the Bay Area this coming January 2014, before the show wanders again  this time to England and other locations.  all the Bay Area shows will be at the Milkbar in Oakland this time:
-January 4th and 5th, 2014 at 4:15pm
-January 11th and 12th, 2014 at 4:30pm
-January 18th and 19th, 2014 at 4:30pm
-January 25th and 26th, 2014 at 4:45pm
    NOTE: since this show happens in conjunction with sundown, show times are a little wacky and very specific, all shows start promptly at their start times, and the space is always open a half hour before the show start time

performance by Natalie Greene, Frances Rosario, Nol Simonse
