A performance exhibit
What happens when a culture of shame leads to a mysterious death and the revealing of a secret life?
Nothing Further, a performance exhibit, examines the relationship between a daughter and father, a Vietnam veteran who lived with PTSD, and how it affected their family, the community, and subsequent generations. Based on a true story, Grundei’s one-woman multimedia performance explores secrets, family history, generational trauma, gender identity, and the need to keep up appearances.
“Nothing Further came from the police report that was filed after the investigation of my father’s death had been completed,” says Grundei. “The last two words on the report read, ‘Nothing further.’ As audiences will discover, however, there is much more to explore and investigate in this piece.”
