Steelwords portrays the artist Gail Langstroth’s encounter with KATÁ, a 72,000 pound, 12-ring, steel sculpture by Pittsburgh’s Dee Briggs. Struck numb by awe, Langstroth stands, stumbles, forgives, forgets—attempts to give voice. In an orchestrated, 9-part performance piece, Langstroth bares and bears … “And the abyss? The abyss?” Within the threshold of Pure Experience Langstroth listens—KATÁ speaks!
