Arts Initiative. Work-in-process presentation of Cellular Songs, the newest in a series of music theater pieces by Meredith Monk that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke the ineffable. Performed with the women of her acclaimed Vocal Ensemble (Ellen Fisher, Katie Geissinger, Allison Sniffin, and Jo Stewart), Monk combines some of her most adventurous and daring vocal music to date with movement, light, instrumental music and film.
The February 2nd presentation was the culmination of an 8-day workshop at Grace Farms where Monk and the ensemble will continue the piece’s development.
Cellular Songs will premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music from March 14-18 2018.
