Sally: A Montage: was a devised performance piece directed by Bucknell Professor Emeritus Bob Gainer and enacted by Bucknell professor and Stadler Center director, Shara McCallum, English department chair, Ghilslaine McDayter, faculty member John Hunter, staff psychologist Shallary Duncan, and Bucknell alum Nisan Trotter. The piece rendered excerpts from works by various creative artists who have worked on imagining the subjective realities of Sally Hemings and wove together the play "Sally" by Sandra Seaton, excerpts from the soundscape and film "American Cypher: A Stereo Helix for Sally Hemings" by Mendi + Keith Obadike and the opera "Sally Hemings Wakes" by Garrett Fisher (click here for information about the Fisher Ensemble). The performance took place on April 18, 2011.
