About Crack of Dawn

In January 2009, Greg and his partner found themselves in rural Illinois sitting at the kitchen table of a traditional Amish couple, Samuel and Martha Herschberger. Across that table, they attempted to share a conversation across divergent perspectives. Crack of Dawn is an online improvised durational performance that lasts from sunrise to sunset, taking the idea of that original conversation as its source and replaying it again. And again and again and again. Through an almost musical progression of repetitions we will share secret thoughts, differing perspectives and apple butter recipes over a distance as one afternoon turns into a strange, kaleidoscopic examination of empathy, assumptions, and the possibility or impossibility of ever really understanding one another. Jokes recur, facades slip and there might be Time After Time karaoke. You are invited to dip in and out, put it on in the background or join us for the whole thing. We’ll be here all day. Age 16+
