Come Hell and High Water
Devised and Directed by Granada Artist-in-Residence Dominique Serrand
Taking the structure of an oratorio built from song, dance, story, and character, this devised work explores the epic forces of a flood. Just as Faulkner’s novella “Old Man” used the Mississippi flood of 1927 as the backdrop for his story, here the key elements of Faulkner’s story form the point of departure: a convict set free by the rising of the river, a young pregnant woman marooned in a tree, a deer swimming for its life, the birth of a child, and the bursting of the levees.
