About the Show
Anna I and Anna II — one divided being, though you see two of them — are one heart, one savings account. A single past and a single future. Brothers, Mother and Father send them into their future to make a fortune in the big cities of the U.S. They will send their money back to Louisiana to rebuild home. And so we embark upon that most American of narrative devices: the road trip. Anna’s one self is proud and artistic but, as theater-goers aren’t interested in art, Anna’s other self persuades her to sell her body. From city to sin to sin to city to city to sin to sincity. To homecoming. Add to this the stories of others who wander the landscape searching to fill the gaping hole that can be stuffed only with what they have to sell. Beauty, riches, food, drink. A piano or two? All the comforts of human invention and the tools to show off that you have them. If that doesn’t make you satisfied, then I suppose you have no place here.

s.i.n.s.o.f.u.s. takes the Weill/Brecht ballet/chanté, Seven Deadly Sins, and pairs it with a few female-driven pieces from the Mahagonny songspiel as well as writings from women who would have been Brecht/Weill contemporaries.

About
an immersive performance that explores groundlessness;
offers a space for holding on, letting go, mourning, and hope;
traverses space in a disorienting environment;
celebrates connection, agency, and identity;
mediates between figure and ground, personal and universal...
