DC Premier of “In These Boxes” – Help tell the stories of what the departed left behind

Someone died and now you have their things. Or maybe just one thing. It might not even be valuable. An old spoon or a glove. But you can’t bring yourself to throw it out. You can leave it here.

Post your photos to Instagram with the hash-tag #InTheseBoxes. Or send to Dudley@dudleysaunders.com

Visiting musician- artist Dudley Saunders asks us to reach out locally in DC for photos of the objects people have inherited from loved ones and can’t let go of. This performance incorporate images collected from the local community.

“In the fall of 1991, my two ex-lovers died of AIDS within two months of each other. What made it worse was realizing that nobody who remembered us together was still alive.
The hidden meaning in ordinary objects haunted me.” Dudley Sanders

Your personal contributions –gathered from our communities- will be incorporated into video art for Dudley’s DC performance of IN THESE BOXES at BloomBars; a combination of video, song and stories that imagines the lives of lost people through the objects they left behind.
