Theater artist Kaneza Schaal first came to REDCAT as a performer with seminal New York ensembles The Wooster Group and Elevator Repair Service. Now she returns with her own work as the director and co-creator of JACK &, a multimedia comedy of errors structured on social codes and trainings. From The Honeymooners and Amos & Andy to debutante balls and prison re-entry programs, JACK & is a place of theatrical imagination that inhabits the liminal space between dream and reality. Starring Cornell Alston, the piece considers re-entry to society after prison through a prism of baking fiascos, minimalist painters, ancestral ceremonies, and the dreaming one gives to the state while incarcerated. Drawing from diverse social rituals, JACK & gives creative dream time its due. Featuring design by artist/author Christopher Myers and a live sound score by Rucyl Mills.
