Sacha Yanow ’99

Sacha Yanow ’99 wrote and performed Dad Band at Joe's Pub in June. “An intimate psychological portrait of the artist’s father, her internalized dad, and patriarchy in general, ‘Dad’ covers and lip synchs to his favorite songs from the 50s and 60s, shares footage of his 1970s winning appearance on the To Tell the Truth game show, presents motivational speeches, and more. His button-down shirts become his costumes, his yellow notepad—usually reserved for stock market details—contains his set list, and his Agatha Christie novel collection and Wall Street Journal become his props. Over the course of the evening, we get to know Dad as he dances, sings, screams, and lectures.”
