La morue/The cod
Saturday November 2 8 pm
“Working instinctively she places everyday objects — a teapot, an ice skate, a rat, a pair of sling-back shoes, a trophy — on a pair of turntables, and watches the shadows they cast on the wall in front of her. These shadows, which rotate and swirl to a soundscape of exaggerated rumbles and scratches from the turntable, are utterly captivating; Shakespeare would have called them wondrous strange.”
—from a text by Robert Enright
