WHILE YOU WERE OUT
Conceived by Andrew Dolan & Hayley Finn
One mysterious journal.
WHILE YOU WERE OUT is a new performance piece that simultaneously tells the story of a woman at age 28 and age 58. Having lost her mother at a young age, she is thrown into a journey of self-discovery when her mother's personal journal shows up at her door.
By splitting the audience in two and using broadcast technology to put characters’ subconscious thoughts right into audience headphones - the work explores the intersection of narratives about self-discovery, loss, and family.
While You Were Out was made possible with project support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Howard B. & Ruth F. Brin Jewish Arts Endowment, a fund of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation’s Foundation, with additional support from the Julia Kaemmer Fund of HRK Foundation, The McKnight Foundation, and Target.
