A bold re-imagining of O'Neill's first full-length drama about an American farming family coping with the desires of a new generation. The production combined physical intensity, original music, and site specific audio and video to explore the mythology of the American dream.
The first half of this excerpt shows the opening movement sequence that establishes the stark dramatic canvas of the production. The second half shows a rare moment of grace for the lead characters, Robert and Ruth.
Produced at the California Institute of the Arts, 2007
