from "W.Va. Schizophrenic Blues"
"W.Va. Schizophrenic Blues" ("A SPEEDING SUBWAY TO YOUR
SKULL WITH NO STOPS SCHEDULED"Dylan Tran, High Performance) is a 3
1/2 hour solo piece done at The Walker Art Center in 1994 - it is built
around the true story of my mother who was a victim of the mental health
institutions in W.Va. during the sixties and early seventies. It is emotionally
intense and psychologically volatile. I play the characters of my mother,
myself, psychiatrists and my other siblings. The installation consists of
a 10' jungle gym and a chain link fence which encloses the stage. Alan Pulner
directed the piece.
