The Great Green

by Joanna Rotkin

The Great Green is a thorny narrative of social codes, false pretenses, quirks and incongruities. Amid the uproar of vexing topographies, this solo work unearths, disputes, and relishes in a skewed conversation of gluttony and greed. By investigating the demarcation of ownership through landscape and power, The Great Green is a world that traverses between absurd stand-up comedy, starving despair, and choreographic upheaval. Through rich imagery, dialogue, repetition, and fourth wall break down, The Great Green codifies personal, familial, and cultural gesture using an illogical and bizarre theatrical arc to convey the vast disconnect between the grandiose power of greed and ownership with everyday existence in our consumer driven culture.
