What Murmurs

With Edward Abbey, Gelsey Bell, George Bergen, Hilary Deeley, Vanessa Gageos, Helen Hahmann, Nuno Neves, Tiago Schwäbl, Anne Undeland, Laura Vitale and Laura Wiens.

“I am speaking to you now from the edge of a very large swampland. I cannot really see where the water ends and the land begins. Radio play loves edges: between seduction and oblivion; between the raw and the cooked; between the fur and the bone; between infinity and the present tense; between the play and the thing; the value of quiet beaver labor away from the mainstream, reshaping the local landscape as she creates shelter for herself and for her little grand idea that stumbles in, uninvited. But I have no intention of offering neat parables to you, not when I am lying inches away from stinky mud.

Text/Flesh

Between 1984 and 1989, I worked intensively with choreographer and dancer Karen Bamonte on a series of pieces that played somewhat tongue-in-cheek with various philosophical and literary ideas about textuality in relation to the body and corporeality in relation to the text.

Percussionist/artist Toshi Makihara joined us in 1986, adding rhythmic and “timekeeper” elements. Below, excerpts from our publicity materials, also accessible as a PDF. I have several videos, and will upload them once digitized.
