Martha works for Maurice Le Noir. Martha plays the trumpet Whilst Maurice Creates Art with granite bricks and concrete.
She does not pretend to know anything about modern art. She does not have to. She’s just the trumpet player.
Maurice Le Noir is a performance artist of world renown. He hasnt done anything since his immensely popular work, CUBE. That was 10 years ago. Maurice HAS BEEN making a comeback with an edgy untitled work exploring a conflict concretism.
Martha Has A problem with the bricks. Martha used to be Maurice’s muse. That was before the bricks.
Now the bricks are center stage and Martha behind a curtain. She harbors a secret fear That the bricks are more photogenic than she is. They are certainly less opinionated and probably cause less trouble.
Martha is not Supposed to Discuss the work. She is expected to stick to the agreed playing musical score, and is banned from making any remarks of a personal nature about Maurice Le Noir or in any way critics sing the artistic Decisions That Were taken during the creative process.
Martha is not happy.
Martha does not know it yet but she is at a crossroads. Will she be defeated by the bucket of doom, or will she wield the sledge hammer of victory? Demotion or demolition? Only Martha can decide.
