BECKETT, SAMUEL - THE WHOLE THING'S COMING OUT OF THE DARK (CD)


"The recordings in this production provide an impressive documentation of beckett's 'visual writing'. To the fore in the selection of texts for this cd (texts which also provided the basis for a subsequent audio-visual performance in the kunsthalle in vienna) were the author's so-called "eye pieces" together with some of his observation and movement sketches: Molloy (1951), L'image/the image (1959) and Company (1980) - three texts from different phases in the life of the irish author and nobel literature laureate. They are read by the actress Natasha Parry and the actor Barry McGovern and by the american author Raymond Federman. The playing directions for the instrumentalist on this CD (Uwe Dierksen) are derived directly from the so-called sucking stones sequence in Beckett's novel Molloy, where the author has his protagonists invent three variations of the correct way to suck 16 pebbles - distributed between two coat or trouser pockets."
