ABIGAIL HOBBS is a cypher. As the manifestation of an alter, she becomes witness-catalyst, victim-accomplice, surrogate-specter. Adopting the old newsreel/serial/feature film format and staged in the meeting house-like setting of the Sunview Luncheonette, ABIGAIL HOBBS explores subjugation and its remedy, from Salem Village to the Port Haven Psychiatric Facility, through live multichannel sound improvisation, projection, historical reenactment, and more. In a space between the meta-ceremonial and a YouTube truther pastiche exists a conjectural ABIGAIL HOBBS, a Monarch/Epsilon anti-heroine avatar, begging the question, who's will is it anyway?
A "newsreel" unique to these performances for ISSUE is a special tribute to the infamous Boleskine House, destroyed by the Fire of Alban Arthan this past December. ABIGAIL HOBBS is L.GRAY, Michael J. Schumacher, Stefan Tcherepnin, and Nisi Jacobs.
Capacity is limited. A $5 RSVP commitment is asked to ensure seating.
