Voicing Pain and Suffering
Pure Research 16 – Mary Walsh
To explore a method to unfetter language, freeing it from the restraints that enslave it and make language nothing but a workhorse in the service of the other arts. Can you stab people in the eyes with text, the way Francis Bacon does with his paintings? Can an actor vocalize that level of pain and suffering, finding a way to ensure the words do not trivialize?
