A correspondence that revolves around a discussion between Performance artists Sharon Smith and Katie Duck.
Abandon Human is a structured play between a lighting designer and two performers. What is important about the two performers is that one is mid-60’s and one is mid-40’s. They have worked and played together for twenty years. They are female. They are ‘unruly women’ (behaving inappropriately especially for their age and stature). They are mothers. Katie and Sharon have daughters. It’s a woman thing. They have shared a friendship that has grown into family feelings over twenty years.
Katie and Sharon have known and worked with each other off and on since the mid 90”s. They share a fondness for keeping their pieces in real time with an edge towards an anti hierarchical artists role with public’s. They look allot a like. Yet they are not related.
