Blue LizThe Kitchen, October 23-25, 2008 (New York)

Blue Liz samples imagery, text, and sound from the 1960’s to evoke the decade’s wartime mindset and the emergence of a pop/minimalist aesthetic in the arts. Incorporating ten performers, multiple locations and pre-recorded and live video elements, Blue Liz questions what can be redeemed and what has been lost from the 1960’s, a critical decade in American and world culture. Spradlin works with composer Chris Forsyth, who performs live, and performers Natalie Green, Michael Helland, Colin Stilwell, Sandy Tillett and Rebecca Wender. Lighting design is by Joe Levasseur.
