In the lounge Gershwin Live: Man & Wife Featuring Emma Goldman-Sherman
About This Show
Marriage and Childrearing become Impossible Constructs for Man & Wife when it becomes clear that they are on different sides of the Partisan Patriarchal Divide. As time leaps forward, beyond Dreamscape, Projections, and Politics, their children become non-binary and indistinguishable, and their Intimate Connections (mostly built through the mutual accumulation of stuff) begin to dissolve. Wife, against all manner of Feminist Assault, attempts one final sally toward Connecting with Man.
