Accidental Nostalgia

Part of Out There 17

“Part alt-country, part Lou Reed, part Patti Smith, part performance artist.”—The Washington Post

Tragicomic alt-country music-theater? Of course. This wry tale of intrigue and memories lost and found (and perhaps better suppressed) is by OBIE and Bessie Award-winning singer Cynthia Hopkins and her six-member band Gloria Deluxe. Charming yet disturbing, this piece of personal storytelling revolves around the travels and travails of a woman suffering from severe memory loss and cleverly unfolds through live music, movement, and ingenious videos and sets designed by the Wooster Group’s Jim Findlay and Jeff Sugg. Directed by DJ Mendel and choreographed by Jordana Che Toback.
