A DEEP SPACE PERFORMANCE RESIDENCY
Keener: A person who keens for someone who has died.
Inspired by a trip to the Lower East Side’s Tenement Museum, William Burke and Alaina Ferris resurrect a group of female professional mourners from the late 1800s, and invite them into our lives to wail and keen for our inanimate and animated modern appliances. Come pinpoint your grieving so that somehow and someday we may leave our burdens behind. Lets breathe together in some sort of solidarity during these troubled times.
