Art of Memory, Bloomsday

Happy Bloomsday & Art of Memory

Happy Bloomsday! Will you be in NYC anytime between July 16-August 2? If YES you might wanna check out Art of Memory (2009), a (reworked) theater piece from Company SoGoNo w/ video design by James Short.

Here’s a description of the production from the company: “In Art of Memory, four librarians create an elaborately braided narrative about forbidden knowledge and transgressed boundaries. They seamlessly inhabit various roles, including handless maidens, the Bronte sisters, an ill wind, and minor deities. Comedic and dark by turns, the piece employs books, children’s games, and alchemy as it traverses internal landscapes of memory. Towers of books topple, the best-laid curse goes awry, knowledge confuses rather than instructs, and hearts are twisted for this quartet of ‘researchers’ in search of the mind’s body of knowledge.”
