Capes and Masks one of a series of experiments in displaced, anonymous and secret audiences.
A surreal and melancholy story of a dream written by Rita Kalnejais that can be heard only if you (the audience member) don the cape and mask.
The public transform into a sculptural forms as audience members becomes a still and focussed creature both watched and watching.
Part of a suite of interventions which included The Marconi Experiment : a secret society brought together through hand written letters who surreptitiously and anonymously gave away their books.
