Tandem is a domestic scene — It is dialogic — Sometimes it is adversarial — The homogeneity of its back and forth is punctuated by individual flights of lyrical accusation, slapstick blurted utterances, and maybe even moments of accord — Time is a cursor constantly in motion: musical events are fitted in, not placed — It is Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell spitting out lines for Howard Hawks’ stopwatch — affect is not so much absent as intermittent and unreliable.


Tandem was premiered by Christie Finn and Felix Behringer on March 8th, 2013 at the Elastic Arts Foundation in Chicago, Illinois.
