TONGUES

by Sam Shepard & Joseph Chaikin

 

The man (Joseph Chaikin) becomes the voice of a mother, a worker, a blind man and an exchange between two contradictory characters. The percussionist (Sam Shepard) syncopates with his drums between and over the voices. At the Magic Theatre where it was recorded the pair sat back to back, the man facing the audience, the percussionist behind among his drums, only his arms visible.

The Man: Joseph Chaikin
