WIDOW'S WALK (2011) – 15 mins
Music: Phil Kline, Lennie Tristano
performed by ETHEL
Widow’s Walk takes its name from an architectural feature that frequently appears on 19th century roofs along the New England coast where, according to a romantic myth, wives of mariners would watch for ships at sea, and, often in vain, would await the return of their loved ones. A powerful narrative of community, love, and loss.
