Only Breath, Words
Anna Craycroft was in residence to continue production on her new theatrical work Only Breath, Words, which plays with the identification and manipulation of the source of a speaker’s voice. From harnessing the sonic potential of the air-handling system and the acoustic character of room to sculpting light sources and projection, the performance activates every part of the theater’s architecture.

Catskills-based artist Anna Craycroft was in residence in the Theater to begin work on Only Breath, Words, a theatrical event that takes the embodied language characteristic of now-outmoded oral traditions as its starting point. She worked to develop theatrical lighting rigs to project words and phrases onto the stage, and collaborating with EMPAC’s production team to develop a site-specific sonic work that utilizes the Theater’s plenum and air handling system.
