The Hannah Complex is a lecture in one act for two vocalists, chamber orchestra (or pre-recorded music), and slide-show. This is the first half of a work-in-progress performance at Stain Bar in Brooklyn, New York on Monday October 27th, 2008. I co-wrote, co-directed and co-starred with Patrick Davison, who also designed the slides. The slides were operated by Jo Lampert. This WIP performance was produced by Meat and Bone Theatre Co, and did not include a musical element or a full set of visuals.
Concerned largely with identity, and taking a very severe interest in the audience's understanding of the ways in which reality can be organized and sense can be made of the every day world, The Hannah Complex explains why it is we need memes, and why some of us are capable of being at once ourselves and also ... well ... anyone else. Each vocalist seeks to deliver their points at times in tandem with, at times in deference to, at times in spite of and at times despite the other vocalist's.
