Curated By: Foteini Aravani
Need to know is the work of the month March.
A radio play that aired on WBAI in New York in 1978, Need to Know is a sound structure. With allusions to Sam Cooke and the socio-political upheaval of the era, this multi-voiced “Experimental Theatre of the Air” is alternately playful and, as promised by its title, urgently imperative.

Shamberg, Leslie Schiff, Ann-Sargent Wooster, James Umland, Juliet Weber, Lawrence Weiner. Music: Peter Gordon. Mix: Paul Wunder/Lawrence Weiner.
