Inside the locomotive, inside the ocean. Fireman is the dark smart soul who has to keep shoveling coal into a furnace to let a life keep on, trying to be the Idiot, motivating herself to one day become enlightened. Behind optimistic songs and personalities is a cloud of sorrow. Sasamoto’s new storytelling endeavor is a search for a piece of optimism in the murky memory of hardship and drama. She as always strives to make sense of personal episodes through gestures and sculptural objects. Occupying a landscape constructed by Sam Ekwurtzel, she will encounter an impossibly tall Jessica Weinstein and concepts proposed by Pau Atela, with lighting by Madeline Best and the live musical accompaniment of John Bollinger.
