THIS WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN, by GREG JOSSELYN, Do you have any regrets about your life? Do you, have any regrets about your life? Doyouhaveanyregretsaboutyourlife? One man in a space, in one place, under one light, reciting a text, repeatedly inciting his audience to 'pretend.' THIS WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN, a performance inspired by a Great Grandmother’s archives, is easily belied by its apparent simplicity. But the closer you look – or, the harder you listen, and the more vibrantly you imagine – the more you begin to see in this ordinary woman’s life story, as her seemingly mundane diary entries transform into reflections on memory and inheritance, reminding listeners of their own struggles to constitute histories and identities from invisible fragments. THIS WILL ACTUALLY HAPPEN explores the impossibility of performing the archive, along with the human race’s disembodied obsession with the written word.
