After her first taste of Vincent van Gogh’s letters, Teresa set out on a complex and penetrating search for the spirit of this legendary man through the things he left behind: his paintings, letters, and of course – his myth. History and hearsay entangle her as she travels farther and devotedly digs deeper to the root of Vincent, revealing the beauty within herself and the world, begging to be released.
A non-stop, post-modern whirling dervish of dance, color, and song barely contained in the intimate setting of a loft apartment, the lean and relentless ensemble of Vincent’s Yellow stretches across the river of time to ask our deepest questions about art, memory, nature, and death.
Written by produced playwright, Off-off-Broadway performer and Evanston native Teresa Veramendi (NYU Drama graduate with a Masters in Performance Studies), Vincent’s Yellow is directed and produced by Teresa Veramendi and Amy Buckler. Performed by Ms. Veramendi and her hungry ensemble of performer-explorers.
