A Crack in Everything
"Big ideas deserve big risks, and Scofield and Shuey seem
to have the guts to create some glory."
Janine Parker, The Boston Globe
a crack in everything
Zoe Scofield and Juniper Shuey offer a surreal, visually arresting examination of the gap between cause and effect in A Crack in Everything. The evening-length work explores the enduring questions of justice posed in the Greek tragedy The Oresteia through dramatic video and costumes, atmospheric installations and lighting, and Scofield's ritualistic movement. A Crack in Everything was made over a two year span with production residencies at On the Boards and in Hungary, New Zealand, and the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire.
