In 2005, I performed a puppet show for PS1's Greater New York: Performance Series. The story is called Can't Find the Bottom and is performed with my fabric characters, fabric collage backdrops, pre-recorded audio and me.
The audio recording was made with the help of the extraordinary Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio. He and I share the voices of the characters. Tunde did the recording. It was such a joy creating this with him. His voices are incredible!
This initial story became the makings for a book I've been writing on and off for years. It's about a woman who chases a hot air balloonist seeking a stolen treasure map and a misunderstood perception of love. Throughout the adventure there are pranks, ghosts, cults, muddy hands, dead birds, bandits and old mercury mines. There is understanding, heartbreak, laughter and self knowledge.
You can listen to the recording at PS1's radio archives on their site or right here just below. Give it a listen!
