The TEAM will spend their time at LUMBERYARD developing Reconstruction (Still Working but the Devil Might Be Inside), a new dance-theater work, helmed by Tony-nominated director Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown and Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), about reconstructing ourselves personally and nationally in the harsh light of America’s white supremacist past and present.
The work wrestles with Gone with the Wind as a Confederate monument and delves into race, representation, white feminism, and capitalism’s role in maintaining the system.
The project features a team of 21 collaborators ranging in age from 26 to 95: Brenda Abbandondolo, Jessica Almasy, Denée Benton, Jhanaë Bonnick, Frank Boyd, Vinie Burrows, Rachel Chavkin, André De Shields, Jerome Ellis, Jill Frutkin, Amber Gray, Jeremy O. Harris, Matt Hubbs, Modesto “Flako” Jimenez, Libby King, Ian Lassiter, Zhailon Levingston, Jake Margolin, James Monaco, Kristen Sieh, and Nick Vaughan.
Together they will imagine how we move forward as individuals and as a country.
