A Store of Sucking Stones tells the simple story of a man and his 16 sucking stones. Employing a text fragment from Samuel Beckett’s novel Molloy, the narrative documents the comprehensive sucking strategies of this recluse as he wracks both brain and body, determined to solve this most pressing of problems.

Artists Involved: Performed, edited, created by Jeff Larson; videographed, co-created by Zach Steel.
