From acclaimed playwright-director Jordan Tannahill (Concord Floral; Botticelli in the Fire and Sunday in Sodom), Declarations is an ode to mortality - that of the playwright's mother, his own, mankind's - a joyful and moving attempt to capture the objects, sensations, and experiences that make up a life. Through a lyrical text and choreographed physical score, five performers chronicle a life pulled through time, encountering meteorological phenomena, mythology, political calamity, pop culture, and everyday happenstance along the way. What accumulates is a staggering archive of images, sense memories and voices asserting that here lived, for a time, a woman.
