Drama. NIGHT is made of four plays Bells, Hieroglyphics of the Night, Fire and Night written and performed 1994-1997. "Gunderson's plays take language to a breaking point, and then reassemble it in ways that are both interpretive and generative"--Johannah Rodgers. "Gunderson's radical approach is to turn the usual relation between subject and object inside out. Using a collage of fragments taken from her memory, she hypnotizes us into a very personal, very musical world until we become an intimate part of it. There is no need for the technique of 'stream of consciousness' in this writing, which stands as a bold co-option of the reader's mind"--Bruce Benderson.
