Music : Words : Action
Where are the boundaries between sound, speech, act, silence, metaphor, and the real?
Who sets these boundaries and on whose terms?
On the Cusp (May 4, 2018) interrogates these and other boundaries. Liminal works of the past century—Samuel Beckett’s Cascando, Sam Shepard’s Tongues, Tristan Tzara’s A Gas Heart, Gertrude Stein’s A Circular Play—are performed by artists with and without disabilities, including Michael Herzovi, Arlene Malinowski, Kyle Price, Hal Christine, Sam Porretta, Steve Butters, and Christophe Preissing. Poised between theatre, music, and movement; between story, song, and act; between mundane, alien, and ecstatic—these works open onto worlds of difference.
A ladder beckons . . . a narrative fractures . . . a voice is silenced . . .
