For this new commission, Niall Jones is motivated by an ongoing interest in:
oh…love, oh, love
stop making a fool of me
Throughout this solo performance, Jones constructs, inhabits, and collapses an assembly of props, costumes, and environmental set pieces, creating an unstable theater in the VW Dome.
