Baggage: Performance with video, 20 minutes
Georgia State University Alumni Hall Theater, Atlanta, GA ©2001

A daughter speaks to her dead mother who looms large above her on the video screen. Angrily she opens a suitcase with all the "shit" that Mom has left behind.

She puts on the mother¹s clothes and objects that hold the good memories, conversing with her silent head while reliving the events the garments represent. She discards the things that hold her anger and resentment.
