Returning to FlynnSpace with A Gun Show, So Percussion illuminates the Second Amendment instrumentally to examine Americans’ difficult relationship with firearms. The percussion-based group navigates the intersection of that relationship with race, economic equality, public safety, and constitutional rights. The show references the traditions of Greek tragedy and tragic opera, incorporating a chorus of local Vermont drummers to respond in battering rhythm. Three-time Obie-winning director Ain Gordon and choreographer and performer Emily Johnson give depth to this probing work in which anger meets inalienable rights, dark memories resurface, and a contested weapon sings a bittersweet song.
