Alexandra Borrie was living in Rego Park, Queens, on September 11, 2001 and responded to the catastrophic events of that day as a creative artist. This hour-long radio program includes her recollections as well as the poetry of W.H. Auden, Tennyson and the epic poem, Bike Man by Thomas Flynn. vocollage conductor Amy Lieberman chose the music of Hartke, Vaughan Williams and Steve Reich to match the combination of dramatic recollection and poignant poetry. Angelynne Hinson edited and produced the radio program.
Woolfʼs observations and commentary while on a walking tour through Oxbridge of the early 1920ʼs, became first a series of lectures, then her seminal book of the same title. This reconstruction of her book into monologue form allows the audience to walk with Woolf through the unwelcoming terrain of male wealth, higher learning and privilege. Her observations are razor - edge keen, her anger is just, and her humor is wry. This live performance (currently in production for radio) is underscored to highlight emotional and factual content using the music of Elgar, Holst, Handel and Warlock.
