Marcia Farquhar’s Black and White and Red All Over will be a live consideration of the magical meaning of glamour, the uses of enchantment, and the semiotics of good girl/bad girl fashion.
Always telling or retelling stories, engineering unexpected social interactions in which the distance between audience and performer is repeatedly breached, Farquhar probes the nature of biography and autobiography and grapples with storytelling as a strategy that is forever renegotiating its relationship with truth.
