In BOOM!, both performers are individuals, friends, strangers, family, younger/older versions of themselves, negotiating relations that are persistently in flux. BOOM! examines the conditions of the two performing black women, when LIFE happens, when “fairness” and cause and effect do not necessarily align. The evening length BOOM! builds upon Oliver’s signature investigation of slippages in everyday life where truest selves and real life conditions are revealed, where characters betray artifice and persist in the relentless continuous management of multiple social experiences.
