stuff about the performing artist, abby bender. (still under construction - the site and the artist.) stay tuned for more info, including video clips to come!
Built on Stilts and The Yard teamed up at The Martha’s Vineyard Museum
October 30th and 31st, 2020 at 6pm and 8pm.
A silly, spooky (and safe) adventure for the Vineyard community!
The show was an immersive, farcical Halloween spectacle that shaped
its haunted landscape through storytelling, music, and dance.
Audiences, limited to 30 people, were led through the museum's outdoor campus
in which they encountered a hodgepodge of Halloween archetypes over the course of an hour.
The performance was an unusual collaboration between nearly 20 local and diverse talents.
Conceived and performed by Abby Bender and Jesse Keller Jason with Joshua Bristow, Scott Crawford, Mikah Daniels, Phil da Rosa, Brooke Hardman Ditchfield, Lisa Gross, Laura Hall, Holly Jones, Roberta Kirn, Brittney Moreis, Rob Myers, Claire Page, Darby Patterson, Xavier Powers, Kalyan Sayre,
and other surprise guests.
Audiences and performers wore masks and maintained social distancing measures.
Profits benefitted The Martha's Vineyard Museum.
