In all things under dog, where two things are always true, Monica Mirabile looks at the ‘mafia’ as an outlaw ecosystem rising from a lack of resources to cultivate a support structure. Working on a therapeutic level within this architecture, Mirabile builds out a collapsing of time from the combined personal histories of the performers and herself—working through questions of grief, trauma, support, and ultimately resilience in family systems and the society they are influenced by. all things under dog travels through symbolic representations of a house—with five distinct rooms dividing The Keith Haring Theatre—and a black hole. Heightening the intimacy of the work, the audience, viewing the piece in small groups, move through the rooms with the performance.
Mirabile seeks to bring the “often healing, life-affirmation that happens for the performers in rehearsal” to the performance. In this way, all things under dog, where two things are always true exists along the continuum of the work the artist has been doing at Performance Space, including leading Open Movement, and her participation as a cohort member of 02020.
