14 Sequenzas: Berio's Sequenza III program notes for the
September 2014/ Philadelphia Fringe Festival
"Performing Berio's Sequenza for voice is like having a fist-fight with one's self. It begs for as much raw emotion as the performer can possibly muster, and when done right, should leave her completely exhausted. As a soliloquy to express a woman's plight, the character is caught between the social and personal struggles presented to her in 1965, and she begs through anxious and "insane" expressions to have the freedom to feel safe enough to "build a house" of her own, and to create her own identity in a man's world. Presently, women in America suffer from anxiety and depression at a rate twice as great as men, and as we all know she is far from being treated equally. Despite knowing these facts on the surface, we rarely have an opportunity to experience them in such a gripping way as in Berio's Sequenza, which captures an internal mental struggle exploded outward. Call the Sequenza III insane, sick, scary, disgusting even, but these are all very real and deserved expressions of any truly oppressed group of people, and they should not be ignored." --Alize Rozsnyai
