Good Day God Damn is a forty-minute performance and multimedia installation by At Play performing artist-in-residence Stephanie Acosta, featuring live performers Leslie Cuyjet and Angie Pittman and video created in collaboration with artists Mimi Gabriel and Jessie Young.
Developed through discursive research and rigorous ensemble work, Good Day God Damn employs video projection, sound, and live performance to consider the fractured American landscape, transforming MAD’s Theater in the process. Acosta and her community-turned-cabal of performers flow through domestic borders, mingle with the extraterrestrial, and unpack the limitations of land, drawing on cinematic thriller conventions in an exploration of terror, tectonic shifts, psychedelic self-harm, and toxic monuments.
This work-in-progress showing marks the culmination of Acosta’s At Play residency. It is the first in a multi-installment series the artist is developing that engages movement research and experimental film structures to tear through the personal in the terrain.
