Definitive Figures | Night 3 | Donna Costello & Jennifer Sargent

Friday, March 2 | 7:00PM | $15

Jitterbug and the Aftermath by Donna Costello and Jennifer Sargent
Running time : 50 minutes

Jitterbug and the Aftermath is a raw, expressionistic movement-theater work exploring an unmoored feminine identity at midlife. The piece wrestles with social conceptions of a diminishing feminine cachet, the confusion of “post-feminist” gender roles, and aging as a slow corporeal death. Created by Donna Costello (a dance artist) and Jennifer Sargent (a physical theater artist), Jitterbug puts the body at the center of storytelling.
