Portfolio > Suite for Bass and Ironing Bored (1981-1984)

This photograph depicts the Third movement of the Suite, Blue.

From Script:

Bass Player stops playing and walks over to the ironer/ironing board. Pre-recorded monologue tells a short story as the ironer straightens up, hangs up a purple shirt, and changes places with the bass player. He selects a blue shirt from the basket and begins to iron with his back to audience. She begins to play a simple drone rhythm on the base.

Hanging title in background by Nancy Forest Brown.
