Zena Bibler and Barry Brannum on An Instance of This
Zena Bibler and Barry Brannum
DEC. 20, 2019
In the spirit of Jennie Liu and Alana Frey’s reflections on Water Will by Ligia Lewis, Zena Bibler and I exchanged questions, notes, and insights about An Instance of This. We were both reeling after the performance — described as “an ephemeral micro-community” by creator-performers jose e. abad, Carlos Medina-Diaz, Justin Morris, and Randy Reyes — and wanted some time to process what we’d seen. What you see here is a lightly edited version of the ideas we generated together (via email) in the subsequent days.
