A Tunnel Year is a three-part book with a play at its center, built from a few years’ worth of interrupted thoughts crammed into one-line scenes voiced by animals. Germinated in the Bardo of parenthood and compelled to work in the form of the fragment, it asks: Did I escape? Or am I lost? A Tunnel Year will be installed as a walk-though comic book, and also performed as a live radio play with a cast of five actors from the 2016 New York production at The Chocolate Factory Theater.
Karinne Keithley Syers is a writer, performer, and book maker now based in Northampton after 20 years in the downtown New York experimental communities bridging dance, theater and poetry. Her installation/chamber opera, Montgomery Park, or Opulence, won a 2011 New York Dance and Performance “BESSIE” Award for Outstanding Production. fancystitchmachine.org
