Synopsis

A performance by Steele and her pet turtles features live audio mixing and a female reader. The minimal action takes place in 3 rooms of an apartment. The reader shares the intricacies of raising turtles in a domestic environment while Steele enacts an integration of a new animal into its new home through a ritual cleansing. This weave of chance and action is both playful and banal.
