From the 1950s through the 1980s, the slideshow was a staple of American life. SLIDESHOW drops audiences back into the time of Kodachrome colors, weaving a fictional family history around strangers’ real slides of long ago vacations. A bizarre, funny, and disturbing work that recreates a bygone ritual, and delves into the lost aspirations of American life. SLIDESHOW recently debuted at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival to critical acclaim and sold out performances.
