The Dorothy K.

We’re exhausted, and we have been for an entire week. But we are also patting ourselves on the back because thousands of people came through our installation at the New Island Festival on Governors Island, and a sizable portion stayed to watch our performance of The Dorothy K. The house was full each and every night.

Plus, we collected a bunch of weird stories: the Living Jukebox; those fucking crazy Dutch; the theft of 40 pounds of our pork fat; a thrilling hospital visit with special guest Bob from Twin Peaks; no running water; children running in and out of the house like crazy; C. Ryder Cooley and her beautiful saw; WINE; “Boulevard of Broken Dreams;” The Sheriff; Silent Disco; the Goat and Sheep ferry; “Where is The Pharmacy?;” The King of American Breakfast; wisdom teeth; Rufus Wainwright and TV on the Radio in attendance; small bounces; and on and on and on and on and on and on.

We’ll talk more about the show later, but we know everyone is aching for photographs of the actual production, so here’s some to whet your appetite.

More talk later. Mandie, Ryan, and Ari are posting this from the bus to Boston to meet with American Repertory Theater. Mandie and Ryan will continue on to Detroit to meet with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Detroit. We have a lot to tell you, but we can only tell you in bits.
