Event Description

Din of Shadows and The Music Gallery present

Din of Shadows VI: Mortal Chorus

Doors 7:30pm / Concert 8pm

Din of Shadows’ sixth production is an ode to the human voice, a staple of the experimental music theatre world in which we operate. The show will consist of four works that feature the voice in different forms: singing vs. speaking, live vs. recorded, natural vs. processed. With vocalists accompanied throughout the evening by instrumentals, dancers and visuals, there will be action taking place across three stages surrounding the audience.

The programme includes two premieres: a self-reflective mixed media trio by Angela Blumberg and Julia Mermelstein, and a nomadic sonic installation for six performers by Quinn Jacobs.  Alongside these new works are two recent gems of the genre: Cecilia Livingston’s ear-bending quartet Strange Flesh, with new choreography for four dancers by Angela Blumberg, and Matt Curlee’s speaking percussion solo The Yellow Wallpaper, a vastly tactile Victorian declamation based on the short story of the same name by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.
