SOMETHING ABOUT THE WEATHER

From day to day, season to season, the atmosphere presents with meteorological monotonies and extremes. The weekly forecast attempts to tell the future, for at least the next ten days. Something about the Weather is a poetic meditation on weather prediction. In this immersive ode to the soothsaying of meteorology, a solo performer unfolds a dreamlike tale of infatuation with the TV weatherman. Incorporating a rich soundscape, 35mm slide projection, a smidge of science, and a dollop of alchemy, this poignant and sumptuous performance offers a curious reimagining of the morning weather show.
