Boxelder Bug Variations: A Meditation on an Idea in Language and Music
By Bill Holm
Directed by Marilyn Cavicchia,
with Assistant Director Barbara Barreno-Paschall
Music performed & recorded by Bill Hohnke
Billy Cooper IV
In Minnesota, one phenomenon of fall and winter is that boxelder bugs come inside. They don’t do much. They’re just … there. In 1985, poet and writer Bill Holm used the boxelder bugs in his own house as a jumping-off point to explore small-town life, death, love (and sex!), classical music, and the threat of nuclear war. Join us for an extraordinary evening!
