Friday Phone Call # 56
The Wilhelm Brothers
Today I get a chance to talk to a team of brothers who have been making work together for decades: David and Jeremy Wilhelm. There's such hybridity in their creative partnership. Sometimes they perform music in club settings. Often they work individually. And in the particular case of Red Eye to Havre de Grace, the theater piece they have made with Thaddeus Phillips' Lucidity Suitcase, they collaborate on performance pieces over long arcs of time. We talk about how they maintain both their intense connectedness and their individual identities in the work. We talk about their mentors and their inspiration. And we get specific around the long journey of Red Eye, which will be at New York Theatre Workshop and Walker Art Center this season and just had a very happy run here in Boston at ArtsEmerson.
