The Supplements: while you were partying
THE SUPPLEMENTS is a book series conceived and curated by playwrights Ife Olujobi and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (also a Soho Rep. Board member) and beautifully designed by Studio Usher. The series is intended to provide audiences with a deeper understanding of the theatermaker’s process through interviews, archival materials, and writings from distinguished activists, theorists, fellow artists, and cultural thinkers. Each publication is intended to stand alone as a parallel and singular document, which can be enjoyed separately from the production.
"The Supplements: while you were partying" is a collaboration between Peter Mills Weiss, Julia Mounsey, and editor Ife Olujobi, with additional contributions by Andrew Kircher, Brian Fiddyment, and Brett Davis. The book contains repurposed written excerpts from the development of while you were partying, created primarily between 2017 and 2019, along with an annotated conversation with Peter and Julia and other images and memes relevant to the artists’ process.
