The Murder Ballad (1938)

created by Poor Dog Group

directed by Jesse Bonnell

performed by Jessica Emmanuel & Jesse Saler


With a murky mix of desire, jealousy and emancipatory yearning, Poor Dog Group's latest movement-based work gives forceful physical life to Jelly Roll Morton's legendary 1938 recording. Originally performed in the brothels of New Orleans’ steamy Storyville district, Morton's song revels in the nastiness of its heroine’s voice, whose feral physical energy lays claim to the violent impulses of a woman betrayed. The Murder Ballad delves into the myth of female madness and racialized representations of sexuality
