Saturday Night Séance: Dark Room Triptych
11 p.m. - midnight
Tune in for this special broadcast of Virgina Madsen's Dark Room Triptych presented as part of WGXC's "Saturday Night Séance." Originally produced for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), in this series of three linked stories for radio, writer critic and radio producer Virginia Madsen invites us to reflect upon on the place of The Dark in our collective imagination, and the mysteries and revelations that come with the dark. These stories also form a meditation on a very particular space – the radio, a space of reveries, memory, dreaming, creativity, a quality of space (and time) which is under threat from the spreading of industrial light. Dark Room Triptych is written by Virginia Madsen, performed by Tyler Coppin and Angela Toohey, and engineered by Andrei Shabunov.
