Subtropical Storm: The Undead (13 May 2007)

Dear friends and colleagues,

I would like to invite you to my new performance 'Subtropical Storm: The Undead'. The email notification is specifically for those who do not live in the area of Florida where the performance has been taking place since Wednesday 9 May 2007.

This is the second in the series of 'Telling Future' performances I have made in collaboration with the weather. 'Subtropical Storm: The Undead' is a durational thriller that deals with the issues of announcing future, personal responsibility, paranoia scenarios, drama, autorship, performativity and the effects of rain dancing.

Reviews for Andrea:

'Forecasters said Andrea has the warm center characteristic of tropical storms, but its core isn't very well defined. Also, its winds are farther out from the center than they would be in a tropical storm.

'I don't think it's a good sign,' said Ashley Pagan, 24, who took cover from the wind during a cigarette break outside the beachside souvenir shop where she works. 'It's not even hurricane season. That's kind of scary.'

'The hurricane season does not officially start until June 1, but we are off to an early start this year.'

'Last night at 11.00 pm, the National Hurricane Centre discontinued advisories on Subtropical Depression Andrea. At the time it looked like Andrea was done and likely to just spin itself out. However, this morning is showing a different picture. A renewed burst of convection near the center of circulation is raising the possibility that Andrea could return from the dead... and more tropical than before!'
