Solo For Judy

(solo) (2003)

An exploration in movement of the enigma of Judy Garland presented by the irony of her on-stage and off-stage lives as chronicled in films, biographies and notoriety. The sound track includes clips from audiotaped recordings of the late great icon intended for an autobiography that was never published that blatantly reveal her troubles with substance abuse as well as her anger and frustration. This portrait intends in its irony to present the paradox that was Judy Garland and pokes fun at the legacy of the great inflatable Hollywood dream as paralleled by her most renown role singing Over the Rainbow in the film the Wizard of Oz.

Music: sound collage of excerpts of Judy Garland speaking and singing including Over the Rainbow
Running length: 8 minutes
