Hush: An Interview with America (2013)

“…the artist is a self-critically engaged agent in particular situations, calling for reclamation of the sacred and the future in a world that seems in many ways to be dying.” – Deborah Haynes

 

Productions:

Now at the Uncertain Hour

An intriguing new theatrical event for live performance, online streaming,, and broadcast radio written by Damon Falke.  The show takes the audience on a journey through the landscape of a soldier’s memory as a collector attempts to make sense of what will be left behind. The show asks: in the midst of the relentless currents of time, what can we take hold of that will go on, that will not be lost? The stories blend with the sounds of old time banjo and modular synthesizer to create a unique listening experience. See it at Edwards Opera House, listen on NCPR throughout the North Country, or online at NCPR.org no matter where you are. Friday • May 9 • 7:00p EST   (Click here for more info.)
