Directed by Lily Kind, Wolfthicket draws upon hand clapping games, recess activities, make-believe, and satires of intertwining US American folk traditions. The show is a collage of improvisations that Kind and ensemble have been developing since 2015. Sampling, chorus refrains, accumulation, percussion, and call and response power the music, the dancing, the set. The Pointer Sisters cover Steely Dan. Grace Jones interprets Edith Piaf. Miss Susie and her steamboat, from a childhood rhyme, mutate into a Vaudevillian dream. Kind has written a playbill-turned-bibliography that experiments with citing the omnipresence of Afro Diasporic influence on pop culture.
