POSTPONED UNTIL MARCH: Yellow and Stroke! The I/O Victim


Thu., Jan. 27, 2022 at 7:00 PM ( Thu., Jan. 27, 2022 - Sat., Jan. 29, 2022 )

Static Age Records, 110 N. Lexington Ave., Asheville, NC 28801

Program

Yellow, based on the 1892 short story The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins-Gilman, is an exploration of a woman's internal life when the lights go off and the world fades away, adapted by C. Alex Webster. Loneliness and being alone are two different things, but they can be experienced in tandem. How do we cope with loneliness? How do we manage our wild imaginations when our musings have nowhere to go? Who can we turn to for the "real truth", and what does "real" even mean?

Stroke! The I/O Victim: While hooked up to his homemade EEG music machine, zen Sutherland will be reading an experimental spoken word piece about a stroke victim who is trying to regain his ability to speak.
