Randolph County is a 65-minute work that examines, questions, and brings awareness
to a seemingly benign midwest community. Various locations within the county are examined,
people are real, beauty is questioned -- does honesty exist?
What else...

 
 

Kista Tucker believes she should check the "other" box on forms when it comes to ethnic background. She was born a Hoosier--a unique social/cultural group. Relevance? It's her background.

Her current ventures tend to create their own worlds--worlds that bring audiences to them. She believes one purpose of her work is to invite people to question, to ponder, and from what she's learned, they do. They don't always understand, but they do question. Our world, our society, our "givens" need a good review. Randolph County is real. This low-populated, rural community is real. While it secrets a variety of personalities, overlooks uncomfortable situations, and fosters trust in an untrustworthy world, it is also a community that many call home.

Tucker started choreographing this evening length work, Randolph County (The David Lynch Project), in January 2009. Because of an awareness of similarities between Lynch's work and her own, she began an in-depth search to learn more about Lynch (the film director and painter) and his work. She also complimented this investigation with a study of her own work. Information was and still is being gained via movies, books, audio CD's, videos, word-of-mouth, articles, online resources, and considerable gut feelings. Gut feelings are the strongest connector. The other research assists in understanding those gut feelings.

Tucker's active knowledge of Laban Movement Analysis (she's a Certified Movement Analyst) greatly enhances the material and assists in establishing greater understandings.

Two previous works created and produced by Tucker, Simple Stick People (2006) and Genevieve of the Woods (2008), seem particularly fitting for this project. SSP just happened and it was with this dance that Tucker recognized similarities in her work and David Lynch's work. Genevieve... should appear closley linked because it was used a pilot project for Randolph County, the working title for an evening length movement art experience. Aspects from both SSP and Genevieve... will be incorporated into the final work. Additional pieces from her repertory also elicit similarities with Lynch's work. Of course, his work evolves and so does hers. Perhaps this crossing of paths will be momentary, but the information gained through examination enriches the next project.

The David Lynch Crowd
(go to the David Lynch Crowd page)

A new group created for the intrigued, experienced, and the inexperienced--for those curious about David Lynch and his work. Based in Rochester, NY, the group will have special "events" on Facebook and will also have occasional meetings. Though meetings will occur more frequently in the Rochester area, they can also be held online, in other cities, villages, or places.
