Talk


Carl Rux

In Talk, four “experts” discuss and ponder a controversial fictional African American artist’s life and work. Borrowing its form from Plato’s Dialogues, Rux’s multimedia play searches for truth, explores the difficulties in political struggle experienced by many literary artists in the 20th century, and examines the subjectivity involved in analysis.
