Zuerner presented her own piece, with frantic, almost robotic movements that, taken as a whole, seemed like a cross between The Stepford Wives and Diary of a Mad Housewife. In perfect pearls, hairdo, and makeup, with a crinoline under her white knee-length dress, Zuerner takes us through her day, complete with an imagined conversation (with her husband?).
Becca Cardwell and Lillie DeArmon give us an excerpt from Schmerer's Nothing Lasts Forever, Nothing Is Lost Forever. Using a flashlight as their only spot, the frequent startle reflex of one character and their silent screaming mouths combine to establish an eerie, frightening mood.
Owen's Folk Songs (excerpts) are three tunes by Patty Griffin, beginning with the sprightly "If I Had My Way," brought to life by an ensemble of five dancers; then a dramatic interpretation of "Standing," danced by Julie Voshell; and finishing with "Little Fire," a tender duet by real-life partners Grant Dettling and Katie Keith-Dettling.
