Devised in collaboration with Thingamajigs Performance Group

Kahlo/Aoi: A Thread for a Nest is a noh-influenced poem sequence about a weaver challenged to address her past. Based loosely on the struggles of art and companionship in Frida Kahlo’s life, the weaver considers the confines and opportunities of her work. Judy Halebsky’s book of poems, Sky=Empty, won the 2009 New Issues Poetry Prize and was recently named a finalist in the 80th Annual California Book Awards. Using unusual musical instruments, Thingamajigs Performance Group (featuring Suki O’Kane, Edward Schocker and Dylan Bolles) combines traditional Eastern sensibilities with modern American technologies and performance practices.
