Sheila Callaghan and foolsFURY set an existential course over shallow waters in 'Port Out, Starboard Home'

Vacation, all I ever wanted: Port Out, Starboard Home

Much of the dialogue was reportedly digested and recast by Callaghan from improvisations and research conducted by the company (including, at one point, aboard a real cruise ship), but there's little that feels true to life. The portraiture here is a long way, for instance, from the photographic portrait-masquerades in Cindy Sherman's work from the 1990s and 2000s, currently on view in San Francisco Museum of Modern Art retrospective. Sherman's art projects a series of worn-out debutantes, former prom queens, backyard pool bunnies, celebratory single ladies, and so on — types you might find on a cruise, in fact, but conveyed with a force wholly missing here because in Sherman's work we can identify the real in the type, and the type in the real. This dissonance is powerful — mixing horror and humor, compassion and revelation — and it remains in the open seas just beyond Port Out's horizon. *
