Chapter #1 THE WAVES by Virginia Woolf
June 16th, 2017
The Waves was a project I did 40 years ago. The adaption was a project where I worked on the deconstruction of a text by Woolf (Chapter #1). In 1978 as a young artist working in theater I was in search of women’s voices for the stage—frankly there were few available for me to discover except in literature. Woolf and Stein were two writers I turned to and found by working on their texts I could begin to understand the sound of language which for me became equal to the importance of the narrative. I saw through this work on the text of THE WAVES (Chapter #1)that organizing the sound of a text was a means to the end for my thinking. The WAVES is a look at what I was searching for 40 years ago—We plan on sharing this text with our audience here in Hudson on July 14th, 2017. This event is a members only event.
