New Georges presents
two lyrical new plays steeped in SOUND
using sound to alter the focus of perception
and sculpt story in intimate and astonishing ways.
February 20 to March 4 + February 14
running in staggered rep
at The Flea!
See ’em both on double feature days!
February 25, March 2 & 3!
Dinner in between? Stay tuned for nearby haunts!
Enter SOUND HOUSE, a “multidimensional object” inspired by the haunted sound worlds of British composer Daphne Oram, inventor of Oramics, a multi-strand sound-generating machine that preceded the synthesizer. Sound functions as experiential road map here, carving out story amid distortions of time and space as Constance Sneed, Daphne’s present-day alter ego, investigates what it is to be invisible.

At THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME, your very own headphones drop you inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein, pursuing her everyday routine in France as World War II erupts all around her. In Gertrude’s constantly shifting mind, Alice B. Toklas, Thornton Wilder, and Vichy official Bernard Faÿ flutter in and out of the frame.
