Breadwoman Variations: Anna Homler & Special Guests Lilian Steiner and Samuel Karmel
A spirit, a guardian, a witness to life on earth. A cosmic storyteller so old she’s turned into bread…
Liquid Architecture is excited to present Anna Homler in January 2018, enchanting audiences with her celestial vocalese throughout her Australian tour of Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney. Homler will be chanting her divining speech and lyrical melodies with special guests Samuel Karmel and Lilian Steiner in a series of very special quasi-theatrical, fully mythic, ritualistic performances of Breadwoman.
Since 1982, Anna Homler has incanted the character of Breadwoman—an ancient storyteller housed in bread that emerged out of the downtown Los Angeles performance art scene. Of the language of Breadwoman, Homler explains “I think of English as lettuce and my own language as bread.” Kneading language into music; toys into instruments, Homler’s vocal, visual and performance practice explores alternative means of communication and the poetics of ordinary things.
Presented by Liquid Architecture in association with MOFO 2018. A Liquid Architecture project curated by Cara Stewart.
