RHETORICAL CHORUS (LW)

AGATHA GOTHE-SNAPE

Inspired by a chance encounter with legendary New York conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, Agatha Gothe-Snape explores the role of the physical body in transmitting and receiving knowledge. Rhetorical Chorus (LW) presents a choral performance score, developed alongside composer Megan Alice Clune, in the 19th century system tradition of cheironomia, a musical system notated by hand gestures, accompanied by an animated digital PowerPoint presentation, each illuminating the dual languages of Lawrence Weiner.
