A duet in fragments. Vocalist and percussionist take up their positions. Susan and Elissa are facing a beast of their own wondrous creation. They plunge into the chaos and the comedy. Taking the monster by the tail, they get to work.

“…You got a song, man, sing it You got a bell, man, ring it.” (Robert Creely, Old Story)

Given breath by the creations of others including Rainer Maria Rilke, Sha- ron Van Etten, Gyorgy Kurtag, Nina Simone and more, music and words are unleashed.

Created and performed by Susan Bamford Caleo and Elissa Goodrich
