At Prelude 2015
by Normandy Sherwood
performed by Ean Sheehy, Julia Sirna-Frest and Lisa Clair
Why do we need all this stuff? I’m sorry it’s such a vague question, but, you see, some Satanists confiscated my notebook, the notebook that had all the details in it. By stuff I mean things: pencils, erasers, phone cords, wall clocks, pinecones, driveway, threshing machine, silo, catfish, telephone pole, sunset…. Pinecones... Catfish... We are enacting a ritual to mend and recover, to heal our bad relationship with things. We’re reconstructing it from memory. We want to learn how to respect a spoon.
MENDING performed at Prelude on Thursday, October 8, 2015 in the 6:00pm - 7:30pm block. It is in the Segal Theatre at the CUNY Grad Center (34th and 5th Ave in Manhattan), and it is free.
