Had a chance to photograph the ‘dress rehearsal’ for “Under the Skiff” at the Red Room at 85 East 4th St. NYC
Created by Maja Bieler, Audrey Lemarque and Jennifer Sargent.
Here is what the brochure says:
“In a barren immigration office, in a strange country, two native applicants wait (and wait..and wait) in hopes that their papers will be approved.
Maja Bieler and Jennifer Sargent first meeting in the immigrations office.
Maja Bieler waits for her number to be called in the line at the immigration office.
Jenny Sargent waits for her turn.
While waiting in line the two immigrants try and catch up on the newspaper.
Scared by the radical sounds in the office they find comfort atop a chair.
Jennifer Sargent is angry while her friends folds a newspaper into a hat.
Maja Bieler holds up her arm in the now very messy immigration office filled with applications and documents.
Jennifer Sargent and Maja Bieler await for the office to open once again.
