Inspired by Sophocles’ Antigone and origin stories from the American frontier, Our Country is set in California’s marijuana country, our still-Wild West. Based on recorded conversations between the artist and her younger brother, this autobiographical creation is a genre-bending work, steeped in childhood memories and mythologies from Ancient Greece, recalling a time when we were young — as siblings, as a nation and as a democratic system.
This show contains mature language and adult themes.
Becca Wolff and Annie Saunders, the creators of Our Country, use their story to explore siblinghood inside the relationship of main characters Annie (a performance artist) and Rafe (a California pot farmer) here.
