Susannah Mars | EXPERIMENTS IN LOVE AND TRUST
Susannah’s artistic journey into life with her father began in 2014 with her RACC supported Good Grief, an innovative theatrical project that in collaboration with invited artists, including Laura DiTrapani and Jacklyn Maddux, embraced the profound experiences of illness, death, and grief in surprising and inspirational ways.
Good Grief was built on a foundation of stories chronicling the diagnosis and subsequent death of her father, character actor Kenneth Mars, and was capped off with a music video, The Dog Song by Nellie MacKay, made in collaboration with Laura DiTrapani and funded by RACC (Regional Arts & Culture Council).
Upon completion of this workshop she knew there was more, and knew, while this last piece had blossomed from her beloved father’s death, the next step was to examine his life, and their life together.
That is what she is now calling Experiments in Love and Trust. These experiments will be on The Workbench in 2017.
