DESCRIPTION

Annie Okay

ANNIE OKAY is an original performance theater work, written and directed by Asher Hartman, and inspired by the unintentional colonialist subtext in two of America’s most beloved musicals, Annie Get Your Gun and The King and I. ANNIE OKAY revisits the musical form to look at what our entertainments say about our struggle with race, identity, colonialist politics, and the American tryst with violence. Poetic, dense, funny, and complicated, ANNIE OKAY challenges and surprises audiences as they are led through the Hammer Museum’s expansive lobby and marble terraces following a conceptual narrative performed by Los Angeles-based performance artists and actors. Featuring a score by Devin McNulty and Max Markowitz, choreography by Prumsodun Ok and Carol McDowell, and sculptural costumes by Curt LeMieux, the performance moves between abstract theater, comedy, and relational components that allow audiences to enter into dialogue drawn from the piece’s mix of ragged humor, violence, and sexuality.
