Nonsense Mouth is a surreal and lyrical visual album in six chapters by theatrical composer Ellen Warkentine, exploring the heroine’s journey and themes of identity and individuation.
Chapter One of the visual album “Nonsense Mouth.” “Thanatos” is an appeal to the life force, to the divine imagination; a plea to be seen and known fully, and to know intimately the entirety of the human experience in its shadow and light. Thanatos is about the self-destructive impulse, the self-imposed cage of the ego, the old persona, childhood.”
