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.
