ERIKA IN AMERIKA

Erika in Amerika is the impossibility of explaining Antonia Baehr. The movie theatre becomes a classroom and we become Antonia Baehr’s students. It appears that she is teaching us about a renown Cow-Woman named Erika and the skills required for American Performance Art. But really we are pulled into a maze of interlocked identities within non-linear forms of narrative.

After all, everybody is Antonia Baehr. Everyone wants to drink the milk of her warm bosom.
