Yanira Castro / a canary torsi

CAST brings together a rotating cast of four performers, different each night, who negotiate a new script at each performance in front of a live audience. A computer generates a unique script culling from transcripts of over 100 hours of conversation with CAST’s 15 performers regarding casting, performing and the complexities of representation. It is a concentrated study of what constitutes a cast. CAST is part of a trilogy of works by a canary torsi premiering concurrently, including STAGE (Abrons Arts Center) and AUTHOR (The Invisible Dog) that examine how we (re)present ourselves in performance.
