Things Are You The All

June 20-22, 2014

Theo Goodell & Rachel Jendrzejewski

Where do you end and I begin?
Do our parts add up to a coherent whole?
So what if change is the only constant?
THINGS ARE YOU THE ALL is a broken performance about bodies, boundaries, and the ways we try to connect.

This project builds on investigations of both content and form that Theo and Rachel have been pursuing from different angles over the past few years, while opening up space for a wide range of converging perspectives from their collaborators and the audience. Digging into the material with an outstanding ensemble of nearly twenty performers, visual artists, musicians, and special guests, this multidisciplinary work about human relationships is parts installation, cabaret and play.
