Claire will perform excerpts from Marcos Balter's "Pan."
National Sawdust becomes a gallery of living art. Sculptures, installations and paintings break from their conventional roles as decorative objects to sing and dance us into a cabaret atmosphere. Images of food hang on the walls – wait…no, it’s real food – stuck to the walls with bamboo skewers! Wine and water – in appropriate vessels – are dispersed throughout as well (not just as still-lifes) accompanied by little collection baskets (to inveigle beneficence), as some of the city’s most talented performers inhabit and animate the little worlds we make when we make art.
