Leonie Bell with LOCAL GRANDMA

December 7 - December 17

$20 – $50

The Brick presents
Created by Leonie Bell with LOCAL GRANDMA
December 7-17, 2023

In this matrilineal, dark humor landscape, the lonesome and forgotten search for new connective tissue, mundane chaos + ancient desires reign, and the trees await a return.

On the edge of a city: Lottie the Librarian and her adoptive grandmother Tante Eunice Geld secretly live in their garden allotment. Witches sing night-time songs around the last sacred grove in the neighborhood in preparation of a death party. Teenage daughter Susi Schmidt schemes to finally join her long-lost father in America and Mama keeps a secret that is eating her from the inside out. An ancestral forest beckons, and Dietrich, child to Mom in the Moon, attempts jazz. Choral song + pedestrian movement; performed in German, English, and Denglish.
