THIS IS NOT A REQUIEM
Tuesday, June 18 | Show @ 7PM | Party @ 8:30PM
Created & Performed by JILLIAN WALKER
This show is part of the ANT Fest Lounge Series, which features ANT Fest Alums in concert! Wigs. Lip quivers. Sweat. Go beyond the illusion with JILLIAN WALKER to remember Whitney Houston as she may (or may not) have wanted.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
JILLIAN WALKER is a multi-faceted artist and thinker who is shaping culture through interdisciplinary forms of performance. Her genre-pushing work SKiNFoLK: An American Show has appeared in the Starr Reading Series, ANT Fest at Ars Nova and the inaugural SPARK Festival for new small musicals at Pittsburgh CLO. Her play Sarah’s Salt. has received developmental support from Roundabout Theater Company and MCC Theater, and was chosen as an Honorable Mention for the 2017 Relentless Award (American Playwriting Foundation). With dramaturgy as the core of her artistic practice, Jillian is theatermaker as archaeologist. She investigates the processes and workings of time, ritual, identity and structure to unearth the ways theatrical forms can impact the larger cultural landscape. Through her residency at University Musical Society (University of Michigan), she researched her new play, Tignon, and a lecture/performance work, Songs of Speculation, which premiered at JACK in November 2018. Jillian was recently commissioned to create brand-new work for the critically-acclaimed Soho Rep. and holds an MFA in Dramaturgy from Columbia University.
