Recoil

Some of us grew up with guns. Some avoided them. Some experienced great joy or great loss because of them. Recoil examines gun fever in the United States. This world premiere performance was devised by students at the University of Pittsburgh in collaboration with Professor Cynthia Croot. In Recoil, the ensemble explores gun ownership, protest, and violence. Performing first-person accounts from Pittsburgh and across the country, we confront the complexities of gun culture through story, song, movement, and image. How have these weapons changed us as individuals, and as a society? And where do we go from here?
