Insert[FirstName], 2019, performance, stills from performance, images by James Chrzan

Insert[FirstName] is a three-person performance within two sets and video interactions. Our protagonist, Alice, is talked at, talked to, and talked over. The conversations take place within familiar scenarios: a chat with an old friend, a job interview, a sermon. Three conversations over three acts interrogate crying. Booklets were made with excerpted dialogue, one for each act. Performed by: Patrick Costello, Alison Kizu-Blair, and Rachel Hillery
