EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR (Fringe): Preteens tell a story of universal significance


A girl, about twelve years old, stands at the corner of a large white mat. As she tells the story of J, a three-year-old left alone in a garden, she raises one arm ninety degrees to her side, the hand slightly splayed at the end. She follows the arm with her eyes. “This is my house,” she says. She raises the other arm about 45 degrees. “This is that game with the sticks.” The arms stay in the air as she continues.

Minimalistic changes in body architecture accompany the life story of J, as told by five young women in constant monologue.
