Door 10's most recent work, THIS IS THE COLOR DESCRIBED BY THE TIME premiered in February at The Flea theater, produced by New Georges. For this sound-based performance, audience members wear individual headphones to drop inside the imagined unconscious of avant-garde writer Gertrude Stein. Through this intimate approach, the audience experiences Stein's repeated and unusual phrases as layers of thoughts, voices and memories interwoven into a rich soundscape. Dramatizing her friendships with Vichy official Bernard Faÿ and humanist playwright Thornton Wilder, the piece examines Stein's forgotten politics and raises questions about the inextricable link between the political, personal, and artistic.
