Claire Moodey

In Performance: Claire Moodey/Lacy Post, femme pathos (Exponential Festival)

With courageous and unassuming candor, Claire Moodey walks onto the Brick Theater stage and plays us a voicemail from her mother. It is surprisingly long, rather upbeat, and circles in loops of logic that are challenging to keep up with. We hear a mother’s gentle love--she’s calling her daughter to say hi, report on hometown goings-on, see if she needs anything--and we also hear an earnest absurdity as sentences run-on and she jumps too quickly from topic to topic.
