Christmas In Quarantine

Christmas in Quarantine was performed online through a remote livestream with Art Works Trenton in 2020, during Art All Night. The corona-virus pandemic inspired the exploration of isolation, the glamorization of the post-apocalyptic, and ritualistic traditions and what that means in a world turned upside down. Christmas in Quarantine is a one-woman performance re-imagining the traditions of Christmas in isolation, without the connections of friends and family the holiday represents. Do traditions and rituals continue to hold the meaning they once did? Moments we once looked forward, now become times of sorrow and dread. Do we latch onto those traditions in hopes we will one day go back to the way things were, or toss them aside as we learn our new normal?
