Listen to Sarah Riggs read from EAVESDROP, beginning March 21 at 7pm.

 

If in Sarah Riggs’ Pomme & Granite, language shimmers as register of pure light, Eavesdrop’s iridescence signs the stakes of dance. Each sequence, in deploying fresh ways to balance language  differences, brings the ear in touch with the whole of thinking bodies, bodies that are elements of the sky — yet knowing when to hit the soundboard of meaning, hard. The stakes are love and the existential tremour of our moment, culled in passim [and in passion] from speech on three continents and dreams and ancient history; or, yet, eavesdropped from ‘interior’ and ‘exterior’ gleanings swimming under a sky full of drones . . . This exquisite pas-de-trois — engaging, as text or subtext, English, French, Arabic, moves toward a stunning finale, hued in the stark black and white of certain cemeteries.    — Gail Scott
