Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster (Nicola Gunn) is the story of a man, a woman and a duck. A woman sees a man throwing stones at a duck. What follows is a dissection of the excruciating realms of human behaviour, a navigation of the moral and ethical complexities of becoming a better person. Accompanying the text is a rhythmic electronic soundscape (Kelly Ryall), and intense physical choreography (Jo Lloyd) shifting from the unnecessary and incongruous to the strangely affecting. These multiple layers form a work in perpetual motion, “a moral and physical workout, witty, outright funny, deeply intelligent and, as intended, morally perplexing…” RealTime.
