VERONICA: a hagiography, a geography.

Installation, concert, performance. In this desolate landscape, which generates every noise we hear, the audience is left to contemplate a restless soundscape that could either overwhelm the stage or abandon it to some post-atomic, pneumatic silence: the silence after the Big Bang. Five performers/ musicians embrace the text, play it, and let it shift into song. The performative nature of VERONICA as a play – part sacred text, part Orphic myth, part voracious innocence reminiscent of the young female protagonists of Jeffrey Eugenides’ The Virgin Suicides – emerges darkly and powerfully from this heedless race towards an act of mourning, one never quite committed to memory. Computers, cables and machines abound as if we’re witnessing a resuscitation or autopsy; as if it were even possible – in an effort that echoes Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein – to bring back to life a corpse that isn’t there, that remains unseen.
