The play ‘Dust’ was inspired by the true story of Caroline and Will Henderson (1877-1965) – born in the same year and dying just a few months apart. Caroline and Will were farmers in Oklahoma, USA in the 1930s, during the years of the Great Depression and the “Dust Bowl”, a time when dust covered the Midwestern and Southern states and turned them into a vast desert…
Human beings operate like conductors. They each take what they need as determined by time or prevailing conditions but also as determined by a place of location, which could be external or within themselves.
It appears that two such people, Caroline and Will, were hiding deep inside me and were forced to reveal themselves when Eleni Chatzi gave them a name in her play ‘Dust’.
From the very first reading, the words and the printed pages, became condensed and transformed themselves into the necessity of artistic expression.
‘Dust’ is an abstract ‘static performance’ which start with Caroline’s straw broom on the dusty wooden floor of an Oklahoma farmhouse and reaches our days travelling on Will’s Model-T wagon.
The struggles, the worries, the disappointment of these two people underwent a symbolic transformation and became images and sound landscapes which in turn, like an oxidised mirror, reflect our present.
