COIN & GHOST & VS. THEATRE COMPANY PRESENT:
"LOVE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY"
(A radical reimagining of Sophocles’ ANTIGONE remixed through the lens of police brutality, black women’s bodies, and incarceration)

Written by Lisa Marie Rollins
Directed by Kendall Johnson
February 1st -March 2nd @ VS. Theatre


In February of 2019, Coin & Ghost hits the stage with the third and final production of our inaugural season: the World Premiere of Lisa Marie Rollins’ LOVE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY. Equal parts ritual, rage, and collective ask to the audience, LIAC follows the Chapman family as they navigate living as black women in a country that claims to love them.

The project emerged as a radical re-imagining of Sophocles’ Antigone, in response to two cultural stimuli: the systemic deaths of black people as a result of police terror, and the generational impact of incarceration on black women. In LOVE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY, a cast of four explores these themes unflinchingly and without apology.

For this production, Coin & Ghost is partnering with Johnny Clark and VS. Theatre Company. As part of this ritual, and to amplify human-to-human connection, Coin & Ghost is employing Yondr bags to create a phone-free experience for the audience.

The show runs approximately 80 minutes, no intermission.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

Launched in the Summer of 2017, Coin & Ghost is a Los Angeles-based theatre company known for its imaginative remixing of known mythologies. C&G defines mythology as “any set of stories that simultaneously SHAPES and IS SHAPED BY a culture.” So Traditional Greek and Roman myths count, sure, as do any culture’s creation myths. But when viewed through this lens, Shakespeare has a clear mythology to it, as do comic books, Tennessee Williams, and other folklore. The company uses these stories as a base, a structure, even as a playground — but not as a rulebook. Each project begins on the well-worn road of a known mythology, and then branches off on its own unique, wild path.

Coin & Ghost is dedicated to adventurous and accessible theatre. Their mission is to use cultural mythology as a base for creative works and education programs that inspire empathy and imagination, throughout the community and around the world.

The name of the company reflects the central idea of their work -- to juxtapose the PERMANENT (what is accepted, expected, established, conventional, ritual) with the UNSTABLE (what is ridiculous, surprising, experimental, bizarre, and eccentric). A COIN is, quite literally, a known quantity. It is a physical representation of stored value, a token of culturally-determined worth, and an accepted, established method of trade. A GHOST, on the other hand, defies universal understanding. If it exists at all, it is ephemeral. Volatile. An echo of what once was, whether painful, sentimental, warm, or dangerous. This interplay between the familiar and the unexpected is the core of what Coin & Ghost does.

The company features creators and performers from several of LA’s finest theatre programs -- including CalArts, USC, and UCLA -- and is a proud member of the LA Stage Alliance.
