Saved Again And By Him
By Andrew Andrews
Saved Again And By Him is Wakefield’s autobiographical account of the incident, edited and performed by Erica Fae as though Wakefield were invited to a speaking engagement to defend her sympathetic character to a hostile audience. But this show is much, much more than an hour-long monologue: combining the recital with slow, fluid, modern dance, subtle but effective lighting (Christina Watanabe) and sound effects (William Neal), still projections and even a surreal, metaphoric video loop, the production fully-engages the audience—as evidenced by the laughs, gasps and groans you’ll hear from your neighbors throughout the performance. It also delivers on Fae’s Anecdota theater company’s promise to use lost stories from the past to explain what we’ve become, in the hope of moving society toward a brighter future. So check it out, then come back here and tell us what you learned. Whether you believe the Dakota Uprising was a justifiable response to a bad situation, or that violence is never the answer, your reviews help others get a feel for what to expect, and your ratings help us help you find future events you’re sure to love!3
