The Wait Room (PLV)
Instability. Imprisonment. Isolation. The experiences women whose lives are impacted by the incarceration of a loved one are brought to the fore with this amazing dance production of The Wait Room.
Today, there are nearly 2.3 million Americans currently incarcerated. While the steady increase in incarceration rates has been well-publicized, there are often hidden victims of incarceration—the women and families incarceration impacts.
The Sing Sing Prison Museum and Bethany Arts Community proudly present the East Coast premiere of The Wait Room, an outdoor dance program created by Flyaway Productions of San Francisco to honor the lives of women whose loved ones are incarcerated.
With a long history of transforming oral history into public art, articulating the experiences of unseen women, Flyaway Productions creates dances on both architectural and fabricated steel objects, with dancers suspended anywhere from two to 100 feet off the ground. The dance, performed on a motorized set, invokes the instability experienced by wives, mothers, and daughters when their loved ones are imprisoned, and the setting, in Louis Engel Park, is near a decommissioned prison guard tower and a children’s play area, which is a comment on the theme.
Flyaway’s choreographer, Jo Kreiter, recipient of a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship who has had a loved one incarcerated, says, “The Wait Room is the most personal work I’ve undertaken since founding Flyaway Productions in 1996.”
