Enclosures 4 contains a folk tale, creative essays, a plan for a theatre in mourning, mathematical desperation and lyrics from recent text-music recordings with Wellington trio Ferocious. It contains the last instalments of a fragmentary novel about Dunedin denizen Robert Stoat.
Any of the books or sections within them may be read independently. The little Enclosures enclose selected writings, but each has its own preoccupations.
This volume is concerned with speech and liberation in the focus media of cinema, theatre and the visual arts, through sound and silence, in darkness and in light.
