On Valentine's Day, 1962, Jackie Kennedy invited television cameras into the White House to what would become an iconic tour of the extensive renovation she championed. In doing so, she reshaped the world's image of the First Lady and of ladies altogether. In 2022, armed with a pink suit (not a Chanel), Ori Lenkinski summons Kennedy's energy to take the audience on a tour of the here and now. The Suit is a site-specific choreographic tour, adapted to each location in which it is performed. The text for the performance is written specifically for the theater in which it is presented and, as such, no two performances of The Suit are the same.
