Thoughts on The Clay Duke Dec 10, 2013

by Jameson Fink

Who doesn’t want to see a live performance that’s a retelling of a shooting at a school board meeting via music, dance, humor, strobe lights, fog, underwear, and discomfort?

still weeping the morning after.

it is as if Dayna and her ensemble took the simulacrum of the human psyche manufactured to ease the marketplace of American culture and stretched it out delicately in every possible direction revealing, among the innumerable strands of programmed violence, the secret animal beings that lurk through us on their way to love.
