A Crackup at the Race Riots

Spring 2014–Chicago, IL

A Crackup at the Race Riots adapts the 1998 Harmony Korine novella of the same name. Directed by Derek Spencer and performed Spring of 2014 through University Theater in Chicago, the production examines the individual as a inconsistent, oft-deplorable agent. What sort of value or objectivity can be found in a world populated by the selfish, hedonistic, and ignorant? The process focused on actor-driven devising, in which portions of text were freely chosen and then incorporated into the performance.
