REALLY by Jackie Sibblies Drury
Presented by Company One Theatre with Matter & Light Fine Art
Directed by Shawn LaCount
In a studio filled with photographs, two very different women work to process the disappearance of a charming, volatile artist. But which of them really knew him? Staged in SoWa’s intimate Matter & Light Fine Art Gallery, this striking, lyrical new work follows the people he left behind as they sort through his remaining photos—which offer confounding clues into to the person they both loved. Through sound and silence, flash and shutter, REALLY explores the elusive way in which photography freezes a moment in time, and what effect that image has on memory.
Audiences will begin their REALLY experience in Gallery Kayafas, with the opportunity to enjoy cocktails and view the gallery’s evocative photography, before transitioning downstairs to Matter & Light Fine Art, where the performance will be held. In correlation with the show, Matter & Light will also present an exhibit titled REALLY, which asks guests to determine what makes experiences 'real.'
January 25 - March 4
