A deeply personal new play by Jordan Tannahill about mortality and the fragments that constitute a life.This is a pressed bruise. This is Greta Garbo?s smile. This is the smell of Windex. Declarations, by acclaimed playwright Jordan Tannahill, is an ode to mortality ? that of the playwright?s mother, his own, humankind?s ? a joyful and moving attempt to capture the objects, sensations, and experiences that make up a life. Through a lyrical and iterative text, five performers chronicle a life pulled through time, encountering meteorological phenomena, mythology, political calamity, pop culture, and everyday happenstance along the way. What accumulates is a staggering archive of images, sense memories, and voices asserting that here lived, for a time, a woman.
