These are a selection of production stills made by my good friend and brilliant photographer/cinematographer/mad genius, Richard Smith, during one of the early performances of “Mine” at the Chicago Fringe Festival 2016.
“Mine” tracks an assault survivor (Kimmy Higginbotham) as she attempts to get on with her life, all the while haunted and hunted by the memory of her assailant (Vincent Truman).
I love these photographs because a lot of them have little to love about them. As I glance through them, I keep thinking to myself, “this is not theater… this is life.”
Shows to go: Saturday, 9/10 at 5:30pm and 8:30pm, Sunday, 9/11 at 4:00pm.
