The Woolgatherers Present: Genesis 22

through July 30
Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays
Colonels Row

Adapted from the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac, Genesis 22 is an immersive performance that twists forms and bends boundaries. The second production of NYC-based company The Woolgatherers, Genesis 22 tells the classic tale of humanity and faith in a new and surprising way. Is Abraham, the father who nearly sacrifices his child, a man of faith or a brutal killer? Sometimes meaning is found only at the intersection of form, and Genesis 22 seeks answers by dismantling traditional storytelling. With familiar text and unexpected turns, Genesis 22 tells a new story about an old story, and re-defines what it means to have faith—and what it costs to get it.

For the month of July 2017, we will be working and performing in a mansion on Governors Island. Within the grand architecture of this historic space, our group of artists will pick apart this iconic story and try to build it back up again. We invite our audience to join our exploration as they meander, skip, and run through 408A Colonels Row.
