SPILL is a play and visual installation inspired by the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill. The project is the co-creation of playwright Leigh Fondakowski and visual artist Reeva Wortel and is based on interviews with residents of South Lousiana in the wake of the spill. The art installation is a series of life-sized portraits of those interviewed and is intended to extend the life of this story past the final scene in the theatre. The artists began interviewing in March 2011, speaking with a broad array of Louisiana citizens including Gulf fishermen, political figures, clean up workers and the friends and families of those lost in the Deepwater Horizon tragedy. SPILL tells the dramatic story of the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and the impact on the coastal communities and marine life of Louisiana. This production explores the rich culture of Louisiana and the resilient nature of its inhabitants in the face of natural destruction and tragedy.
