This work sits with the soundscore of an alphabetised reading of George Bush’s 2002 State of the Union address, broadcast live to the American nation. Dictated by the alphabet, this work is a dictionary of war and its hidden agendas. The performances of these five women at times seeming schitzophrenic, at other times simply ridiculous.
