Beach Letter is a performance that expands on a sci-fi narrative about a Post-Reparations U.S. Incorporates movement to techno music, text, and writing in Hatnahans in the sand. In it, one character sends a message to a friend they have not heard from in some time, recounting the past and telling them everything they've missed while away.

Justin Allen experiments with performance, writing, linguistics, and the still and moving image to understand our relationships to time, social context, and place. He has read and performed at The Poetry Project, Movement Research at the Judson Church, The Shed, Kampnagel, and ISSUE Project Room where he is currently an artist-in-residence. His work has received support from Franklin Furnace and Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
