Ezell: Ballad of a Land Man

Join Clear Creek Cre­ative for the Pitts­burgh pre­miere of Ezell: Bal­lad of a Land Man.

Ezell: Bal­lad of a Land Man is an envi­ron­men­tal, cul­tur­al, and spir­i­tu­al para­ble derived from liv­ing in the foothills of Appalachia, one man among many seek­ing to make sense of the time, place, and con­di­tion in which we live. In the sto­ry, Ezel­l’s choic­es, trau­mas, and ances­tors inter­sect with themes of dom­i­na­tion and resilience as he seeks to take advan­tage of an antic­i­pat­ed frack­ing boom and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to recon­nect with the peo­ple and land of his raising.

The per­for­mance of Ezell is sur­round­ed by an immer­sive expe­ri­ence that calls to our col­lec­tive desire for con­nec­tion and belong­ing, that reveres nature and binds us inti­mate­ly with­in its embrace, that invokes the resilience, love, and lessons of our ances­tors and gen­er­a­tions yet to come.
