A deep dive into the politics of language and the dynamics of privilege, Footnote Number 12 turns the act of reading into riveting theatre. It takes celebrated essay by the late David Foster Wallace, and breaks it down in a series of seriocomic monologues, each of them playfully modulated by sound artist Nancy Tam. Our speaker is James Long, but we do not always hear his voice; as he paraphrases, quotes, and critiques “Roger Federer as Religious Experience,” we get a series of sonic curveballs that highlight gender, race, and perspective in funny and provocative ways.
