In the Silence of the night is a line taken from Etel Adnan’s novel Sitt Marie Rose; the style of writing is a mixture of conversations, news bulletins, monologues, and interviews. The series of performances engages with this idea of open forms of expression, through spoken word, live art, sculpture and music. They evoke the lyrical fluency and the abstract nature of forms of expression within a culture of language where words are the primary form of expression. The performances and the artworks are arranged to create a specific response through meaning, sound and rhythm.
