Composed like a series of postcards sent home from a fabled liberal Europe, A Letter to My Nephew launches a swirl of images around Briggs’ ever-present hospital bed: a vogue ball, a breathtaking vista, a scene of forced migration.
Featuring Janet Wong’s haunting projections, composer Nick Hallett’s delirious score, and live performance by baritone Matthew Gamble, Jones’ cultural critique is rewritten for the time and place of every performance, flashing by each night like a feverish hour of the evening news.
