Home Fires and Reservation Roads
A multi-media performance, including monologue, memory play, actors, musicians, projections, animation, visual art and photography. This autobiographical piece on the nature of generational and cultural memory, is shaped around conflicted memories of a family homestead and the lives lived within its walls. The narrative, in vignettes, are told in monologue and fleshed out by actors dramatizing key scenes. Home Fires and Reservation Roads, directed by Drew Kahl, was first performed in the Goodrich Theater on the campus of SUNY Oneonta during April 2011, the culmination of a residency sponsored by a SUNY Diversity Grant.
