Fractured, Just The Fracts Ma’am is an evening length performance work in two acts combining new technical set ups with the tried-and-true.

The evening begins with Weis’ Politicians pre-show event. Act I is a series of three solos that combine live and pre-recorded video with live performance: Face to Face, danced by Jennifer Monson, followed by Ishmael Houston-Jones, and Scott Heron.

Act II consists of three trios wherein a video performer often plays the third part. The first trio includes Jennifer Miller, Annie Iobst, and Weis’ disembodied head; the second is Miller and Weis and The Outsider (a video composite of the two performers); the third is Doctor, Doctor performed by Miller, Iobst and Weis.
