A Certain Sense of Order @ Théâtre du Centaure

A Certain Sense of Order is a work for two singers exploring the American poet Anne Sexton. Using the text of a single poem – For John, Who Begs Me Not to Inquire Further – the piece reflects on Sexton’s life and work, including her practice of recording and listening to tapes of her therapy sessions.

While reciting excerpts of the poem, the singers perform activities reminiscent of a variety of practices from Sexton’s life: writing at a typewriter, recording speech, listening to tapes. Transitioning between media, the singers manifest and mingle roles from the home and therapy room. Rather than a literal or biographical representation of the poet or
her work, the piece is better understood as a performed poetic interpretation.
