This reading of THE INCANDESCENT ALPHABET invites the listener to enter into a space that assembles the unknown. Musical scores and alphabets wait in jars of water, back lit, on a quiet table. Nora’s voice evokes her new country and her mother country. She returns to a Dublin that is oddly unchanged yet radically changed. Sentences break into unexpected details of perception.
Brief moments of dislocation slowly gather. Entering solitude and absence, two voices speak intimately, beyond Nora. A script dissolves in jars of water, leaving the alphabet, the music, the darkness.

Host: Micheline Cadieux, Gifric
