The Brick presents
?!: New Works 2023 – Night 27
featuring an_outskirt, Jerrod Jordahl, Vanessa Meyer
August 22, 2023

The spiritual successor to The Exponential Festival, ?!:New Works features a veritable slew of experiment(al)(ing) artists from a variety of disciplines presenting brand new work. Working it out. With each other. With you.

by an_outskirt

for ?!:NewWorks we’d like to lean into the ? and share the process we use to invite a more receptive state: droning. as a sound, drones provide us the opportunity to suspend the impulse to move forward, for the vocal apparatus to relax and embrace what comes more freely; for the retreat to that amniotic place where the ear cuts the edge of perception.

death as repetition
by Jerrod Jordahl

death as repetition takes the final few minutes of Marlon Brando’s 1961 film One-Eyed Jacks and replays it to absurd and tragic lengths. Here, violence is not transporting. There is no riding off into the sunset. No redemption. No heroes. No matter how hard the characters try.

Directed by Jane Skapek
with Hannah Adrian & Billy Berger-Bailey

Little Scream
Vanessa Meyer

Do you ever wonder how you got here, who you are, and what your purpose is? Well that’s great! I have no answers for you, but I do struggle with the same existential nightmares. Little Scream is an homage to uncomfortable feelings and the current that has guided me through the unknown to, well…more unknown. It never ends. Thanks a lot LIFE! Come hang out and let’s lean into it, together.

Written, Directed & Performed by Vanessa Meyer

cw: one brief moment of screaming and audience participation will be requested. An audience member will be asked to participate by bouncing a ball on stage during the performance and at one point the audience will be asked to sing along with me.
