Archive Residency- COLLABORATION TOWN Ice factory 2013
HELP ME TO MAKE IT
July 17-20 2013
In Residence: September 2012-June 2014
HELP ME TO MAKE IT weaves together stories about several generations struggling from inside the architecture of contemporary families. As questions arise about fidelity, sexuality, gender, and the myths created to help us comprehend it all, the characters try to make sense of themselves and of familial love. These stories hinge on how personal moments of everyday existence add up to lifetimes of monumental compassion, devastating betrayal, and inevitable transformation.
