Sugar River (2010)

SUGAR RIVER offers a sweet and sour love story, exploring a girl's life steeped in sugar.

This theatrical work features the artist as well as her parents, Marina and Bobby Kelly and uses a variety of media in the re-telling of intimate family stories, tracing the passage from adolescence to adulthood. 

Sugar River recalls the artist's introduction to a new country's worth of sweet things to discover and, eventually, habitually overindulge in.  

This work features sugary Scottish treats (some home-made, some beautifully packaged by the Cadbury company), multiple stage props, interactive video and song.  

A work in progress, Sugar River has been shown once as part of the Inside Story Performance Festival and Symposium at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Mitchell Theatre.
