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. Presented by Carriageworks, Performance Space and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
