PearlDamour (Lisa D’Amour and Katie Pearl) has been making experimental performance in big cities for the past 16 years. With Milton, we wanted a change. Over 2 years, we are traveling to 5 cities named Milton across the U.S., talking to people about their towns and asking questions like: “If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?” The Miltons stretch across the United States, forming an earth-bound constellation. The constellations we see at night are imaginary entities, constructed by humans to give meaning and order to the vastness of the night sky– they provide us with direction and make immensity graspable. We’re creating our constellation to revise any general ideas we have about small town life. We look to our constellation for guidance and wisdom as we attempt to orient ourselves and our audiences within the vast idea of “being American.”
