Reba Mitchell curates Reserve from 10/29 - 11/3.
A reserve, to stow away for the winter in your heart. A store to gather, of stillness; to bed down the mind that asks “Why?” Shhh, shhh…. — Reba Mitchell
11/3: Casey Llewellyn
Casey will explore (as always) the relationship of “you” to “I” and the scraping of the self against the outside. — Casey Llewellyn
Free with museum admission.
Rebecca Mitchell left Oklahoma for Rhode Island in 2001 for reasons unbeknownst even to her. She ferried with her her songs and her musical practice, perhaps the only consistencies in her life.
Casey Llewellyn is a queer theater artist whose work interrogates identity, collectivity, and form. Her work has been shown in apartments, at Collect Pond, Brown University, Pratt Institute, Haverford and Pomona Colleges, and at Dixon Place. Casey met Reba in a strange performance experiment she entered into last March at AS220 called Come in. Be with me. Don’t touch me. And has been her fan ever since and dreams of collaborating with her. Casey’s works for theater include: The Mechanical Opera Company Presents: Z aide!, Obsession Piece, The Quiet Way, and I Love Dick, an adaptation for theater of the book by Chris Kraus. She is currently working on a musical, The Body which is the Town…, which will be her thesis play at Brown where she studies writing for performance with Erik Ehn and Marcus Gardley. She is also working on her first novella and an adaption of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town for The Foundry Theatre in New York City. Casey has developed work at the MacDowell and Millay Colonies and teaches playwriting and other things through Frequency Writers. She makes theater as Public Emotions.
