First performance by Richard Moore and Annette Tesoriero, Bronwen Jones, Daryl Pratt and Lisa Moore, School of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong, 7 September 1990
Ford's Parabola [is] a 1989 theatre piece on Icarus with a lithe, catlike pounce in Barbara Blackman's text. Actors Richard Moore and Annette Tesoriero deliver the words well (just a fraction too stagily in Tesoriero's case), but the visual theatre of the piece is apparently to be found in deliberately exaggerated physical movements by the instrumentalists (bass clarinettist Bronwen Jones, pianist Lisa Moore and percussionist Daryl Pratt). One way or another, this piece sustains its length.
