Find Out Where They At uses text, sound, and sculpture to think about exodus as it exists in the psyche and the residue this type of departure leaves in those left behind. What is revealed in the trail of slime in a drawn out departure or in the particles of dust from a hasty escape? This performance is curious about the mechanisms or vehicles of both forced and autonomous exodus -from vast bodies of water to deadened eyes. Find Out Where They At is considering these questions: How do we, in secret, communicate the moment of exodus? How do we keep the forces of oppression and violation from following us into the space of exodus? How will they know that we are gone? The title is derived from a line within Douglas Turner Ward’s play Day of Absence wherein a town wakes up to find that all the black people have disappeared without a trace.
