180 x 280mm, 16 pages, Risograph printed, Saddle stitch, Card cover, 2018.
Talker is an interview zine about performance.
This is issue #3. It features a conversation with the director and playwright Richard Maxwell.
Since 1999 he has worked with his company New York City Players producing theatre work for the stage, for galleries and moving image. His plays are set in the everyday environments of lobbies, living rooms, karaoke bars and highway intersections. Often non-professionals, his actors portray American archetypes through spare, stylised dialogue and occasionally sing. Recent productions include Queens Row at ICA London, Paradiso at Greene Naftali Gallery and Good Samaritans at Abrons Arts Centre.
