NOSTALGIA RANCH

2021

Nostalgia Ranch concludes Martin’s restaging of her grandmother’s dream diary, begun with Tonight the World. Melding videogame back projections with live-action slapstick, song and dance, this final chapter embodies a peculiar dream of resilience. Two ‘comedy crooks,’ upon encountering an uncanny pair of colonial explorers, are forced to think twice about their crimes.

Based on a dream by
Susi Stiassni
