“Fractured Hearts and Lurid Details “
America’s Big Band period of the1930’s and 40’s open hearted beat provides a sound track for this wistful pean to a romantic ideal that shattered shortly after it reached its zenith in the imaginations of 1950’s America although it continues to live on in the DNA of lovers all around the globe.
“Are You My Kitchen Table?”
“…and when you’re gone..who’s gonna walk me down the street?”

“Language is a grid on reality. I strive to create worlds that transcend explanation, moments of seeing where the intangible becomes palpable. Working towards an insight into love and being that doesn’t line up with the shorthand of everyday vision I aspire to zoom past the representational into the realm of poetic realism. Theater is the medium that best serves my storytelling, supported by an innate skill that I have with dialogue, and because of the still listener in me who came gradually to understand the art that lies in the hearing what lays deeper beneath both words and silence it remains my greatest joy.”
Connie Noyes–Visual Art Workshops, creating costumes & sets
The work of Connie Noyes examines the social constructions of idealized beauty and the values assigned to it by transforming inherited, found, forgotten, discarded, and unvalued materials. As objects her work often exemplifies the existential struggle for existence while questioning the over-determined role beauty plays.
