How close can we get? To the truth? To each other? Let’s start in the body, where our experience has built up invisible walls between us. How do we tear them down? HAMMER interweaves personal facts and fictions, offering my own fanciful “processing techniques” for rage, grief and acceptance, as I muse about feminism, family history and avant-garde performance. The audience starts at safe distance and then slowly succumbs to a final act of trust.
Original development of HAMMER was supported by a residency exchange between Playwrights Workshop Montreal and hub14 art & performance works, as well as Nightwood Theatre through the Ontario Art Council’s Theatre Creators’ Reserve Fund.
