The Mentalist: February 14
February 9, 2010, Volume 56, No. 21

Follow a woman into her imagination, one pattern at a time, in The Mentalist, with Kate Watson-Wallace/anonymous bodies at the Harold Prince Theatre, Annenberg Center on February 14 at 8 p.m. Inspired by imagery in Charlotte Perkins Gillman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper,” a woman goes slowly mad, consumed by the repeating patterns of her surroundings. She retreats into memory after memory, and finally re-appears, larger-than-life, in video. The Mentalist is a movement installation that transforms an empty room on site, covering the space with sound, video paintings, live graffiti writing, punk-rock ramblings, and breathtaking dancing. For tickets ($25), visit www.annenbergcenter.org.
