    Ain Gordon: Not What Happened

    This contrapuntal duet for two people who can’t meet: the historical re-enactor and the figure they re-enact questions the politics of historical re-enactment. A tour guide in period costume working at a deficit-ridden historic site warily greets her tourists (the audience). Her doppelganger, dressed identically, is the actual woman living her silent life. Rural documentary artist Forrest Holzpafel will create/source projected images of farming ruins and empty land. Not What Happened is a project of the Pick Up Performance Co(s) supported by The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Creative Exploration Fund at MAP and the New York State Council for the Arts and made possible with co-production support by Vermont Performance Lab in association with Marlboro College and the Center for Creative Research. Additional residency time was provided by the Playwright’s Center in Minneapolis.
