Female Rhapsodies

Sub-titled ‘curtain-raisers’ and written across 1985 and 1986, they are comprised of three monodramas for actresses. They theatrically illustrate, demonstrate, the premise ‘I perform therefore I am.‘

Proscenium Arch Blues (character: Thea Limbo) specifically addresses theatre and existence through physical immobility. Long Time No See (character: Bea Paradise) explores the same through blindness and insanity. A Shadow of Her Former Self (character: Twiggy Styx) investigates similar themes through senescence.

THEA: What a way to go out.
Dead. Pan.
