- This event has passed.
The Middle Tell is a shadow-puppet performance created by Johanna Winters chronicling a trio of female bards as they reluctantly surrender to a deteriorating condition. These middle women reveal their story through a muted language of hinging limbs and dousing light. Suspended in a time that is both passing and returning, sustaining and releasing, the middle women hover in a state of hesitation between undoing their youth and summoning the process of aging. They are neither bitter nor tolerant of their inevitable decline – they tepidly hinge against and toward it.
