Anne Bogart's latest project opens Sunday, Nov. 3, at PS 122. The noted director is staging the Juliana Francis solo, Go Go Go, about childhood sexual abuse and employment in the adult sex industry.
Live performance, video, voice-over, costumes and music help tell Francis' story, which began previews Oct. 25 and runs to Nov. 17.
Juliana Francis was a founding member of Reza Abdoh's Dar A Luz Performance Works troupe. She performed there in NY, L.A., and internationally in such works as The Law Of Remains and Tight Right White.
Anne Bogart is the co-artistic director of the Saratoga International Theatre Institute. An associate professor at Columbia University, she's won two Obie Awards and a Bessie Award. Her directing assignments have included Hot `n' Throbbing at American Rep, Marathon Dancing at En Garde Arts, and Paula Vogel's Baltimore Waltz at the now defunct Circle Repertory Theatre in New York.
Go Go Go has sets by James Schuette, lighting by Heather Carson, sound by Raul Vincent Enriquez, video by Adam Soch, costumes by Doey Luthi, and props by James Sauli. For tickets and information on Go Go Go, call (212) 477-5288.
