The Middle Tell, by Johanna Winter, is a shadow-puppet performance, video projection, and sound piece that chronicles a trio of female bards as they reluctantly surrender to a deteriorating condition. These middle women reveal their story through a muted language of hinging limbs and dousing light.

They are neither bitter nor tolerant of their inevitable decline – they tepidly hinge against and toward it.
