CALL IT A DAY (Durational Version) by Greg Wohead
Call It a Day originates from a real encounter between two couples who spent an afternoon together one snowy day in rural Illinois. In 2009, Greg Wohead and his partner found themselves at the kitchen table of an Amish couple and attempted to share a conversation across divergent perspectives: One liberal, one conservative. One progressive, one traditional. One faithless, one faithful.
This day-long durational performance featuring Jessica Hanna, Mireya Lucio, Jesse Saler and Wohead, repeats that day’s remembered conversation on a continuous morphing loop. From a single recollection emerges an almost musical series of repetitions, transformations and ruptures. Wohead uses a mixture of improvised and prepared material—as well as meditations on Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time, and out-of-context scenes from the Peter Weir’s 1985 film Witness—to create a kaleidoscopic examination of the possibility, and impossibility, of understanding one another.
