a true story
a true story (1998) recounts the negotiations concerning role and relationship that arise between a girl and her father’s new wife. Performed in silence, and employing both text and movement, a series of episodes cycle through unique iterations before culminating in an unexpected outcome.
a true story is a flexible, 12 minute work that can be programmed alongside The Disappearance of Right and Left or on mixed programs with other artists.
