Only Breath, Words

Anna Craycroft and Sarah Hennies
2018–2022
EMPAC — Troy, NY, USA

Anna Craycroft is joined in residence in the Theater by composer Sarah Hennies. Only Breath, Words is a theatrical production about language, identity and intimacy that has been in development at EMPAC since 2018 and will premiere next year. Only Breath, Words is a performance without actors in which the address is delivered by the theatre itself. The theater’s HVAC system “exhales” through flue pipe sculptures creating hums, murmurs, and moans while words, fragments and phrases flare, pop, and glow from grids of lights that move across the stage.
