Dirges for Dead Malls
Sunday, April 29th 2012
Performances at 8 & 8:30pm
“I think we’re alone now/ There doesn’t seem to be anyone around” – Tiffany
Gone are the days of blissful suburban wandering, shopping, and hanging out in the well-lit corridors and food courts of our past. Come mourn the great american shopping mall – an increasingly irrelevant space in an age of Big Box stores and economic angst.
Claire Cronin and Stephen Van Dyck will pay tribute to these dead, abandoned malls through a performance of 80’s pop hits redone as dirges, with a corresponding sound installation.
