I want to let you know about our upcoming performance at the closing of Sympathetic Connections on September 11 at 3 pm. Von Bark & The Zen Existential Puppet Theatre and I will create within the sculpture installation a retelling of the sea battle of Dan-no-ura, a story of courage, loyalty and suicide. Andrew Paterson will be the narrator, in the role of Hoichi the Earless, the bard who sang for an audience of ghosts.
The performance space will be standing-room-only for about 25 and I hope for audience participation. If you are frightened by this prospect or just busy, it will be on YouTube later on.
Sympathetic Connections at the AGO next to FRANK Restaurant and it is free and open when the restaurant is.
