Driftless Phase 2, directed by Adil Mansoor, gathered nine artists from various disciplines to create a second, short performance piece. This group spent two weeks responding to transcripts from a recent trial involving a protest at a frac sand facility in Winona, MN. The culminating 30-minute performance was presented in May 2014, at PearlArts Studios. It incorporated gestural and surreal imaginings of the trial amidst the artists’ personal experiences with fracking and water. Driftless Phase 2 also created space for the audience to share their own stories and begin connecting with one another through their own understanding of this important conversation.
