Number 14 in the Work Songs series is a selection by Marike Splint. We collaborated with Marike when we created the festival campaign for 'Winters Binnen', where she was co-curator. She is a site-specific theatre director and has created immersive performances in unexpected places like public buses, taxicabs, hotel rooms and train stations. She recently moved to Los Angeles to start teaching theater directing at the Department of Theatre of the University of California Los Angeles. Her favourite place in the world is New Orleans, and during work she always listens to wwoz.org, the community radio station of New Orleans. These songs are a selection of usual suspects on that radio station.
