Presented by Hand2Mouth Theatre
May 13, 2017, 7pm
In 2001, Hand2Mouth ensemble member Erin Leddy lived with her grandmother, Sarah Braveman, for a year and recorded her memoirs. Sarah worked as an actress in Boston, Manhattan, and upstate New York from the 1930s until the 1990s, and the tapes Erin recorded form the bones for this solo performance, a meditation on consciousness, memory, and things passed down through generations.
My Mind Is Like An Open Meadow is directed by Hand2Mouth artistic director Jonathan Walters. Together Walters, Leddy and collaborators Chris Kuhl, Ash Black Bufflo, Holcombe Waller, and Jane Paik craft a sonic and visual world – a strange control station of the mind where memory overcomes the live performance and the two realms begin to blur into an elegant mixture of lighting, pre-recorded voice, music, dance and scenery.
Creation of My Mind Is Like An Open Meadow is made possible in part with generous support from Dick & Pat Schmuck, The Oregon Arts Commission, On the Boards, The Celebration Foundation, The William T. Colville Art Fund, and the Yaddo Corporation.
