Search for the New World Pataphysical Order—A Meditation in Time of War
What has happened to us? After the promise of 1990, we find ourselves catapulted back to the time when brute force solved all problems. 1991 is an historic blight. Rosenthal goes on a tour of her own mind in an attempt to discover the seeds of universal folly. The "New World Order" promises to fall in step with Pere Ubu, wading and waddling in his Pataphysics philosophy, shouting "merde!" at the scud fragments raining on the sands of Eden, as Mere Ubu knits little sweaters for crude coated cormorants. All voices and sounds by Rachel Rosenthal with sound design by Dain Olsen. Commissioned by New American Radio.
