About AMERICAN BOTTOM:
This multi-disciplinary art piece inspired by the geographical area of southern Illinois called AMERICAN BOTTOM begins life here as an experimental audio fiction, written in verse, performed by a full cast, and featuring original music and illustrations. Kevin disappeared in rural Illinois near the site of the Cahokia Mounds. AMERICAN BOTTOM follows the thoughts of the people who knew him; unearthing the many layers of life and story connected to the place he called home.
