'This Is the Worst Trip I've Ever Been On'

Best friends Anne Mathern and Chad Wentzel have created a wistful, simple show about themselves—that is­, disjointed urban creatures reaching toward each other—and home. Wentzel and his sister, Seattle natives, perform the Catholic "Dona Nobis Pacem" hymn they were taught as kids, this time over a speaker phone (him at home in New York, her at home in Alaska). Other works are absurdly, touchingly intimate: Mathern's pelt in the shape of Wentzel's chest hair, her laborious video performance of Wentzel's intricate, improvised dance moves.
