This book offers a series of compelling responses to the Jasmin Vardimon Company’s production of Justitia, a multilayered, multimedia dance theater piece. Through an innovative, visually annotated text, which includes the original script by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the book attempts to record the experience of the performance. Also included are nine critical responses from scholars and theatrical practitioners who consider the performance through lenses relating to time, collaboration, writing, confession, and the law.
