The performance is part of the inaugural Institute for the Performing Arts Visiting Artist Residency, "Dancing Voice/Singing Body: a residency with Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble." Cosponsored by the Eastman School of Music and the Humanities Project.
A reception will follow the event. Parking is free on campus beginning at 7 p.m.
Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director/choreographer and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films and installations. Monk creates works that thrive at the intersection of music and movement, image and object, light and sound, discovering and weaving together new modes of perception. Her groundbreaking exploration of the voice as an instrument, as an eloquent language in and of itself, expands the boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which there are no words.
