Join us for a 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. Performing 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 presentation will be 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.

 

About Meredith Monk

Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director/choreographer and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films and installations. Recognized as one of the most unique and influential artists of our time, she is a pioneer in what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance.” 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. Over the last fifty years, she has been hailed as “a magician of the voice” and “one of America’s coolest composers.” Celebrated internationally, Monk’s work has been presented by BAM, Lincoln Center Festival, Houston Grand Opera, London’s Barbican Centre, and at major venues around the world. Among her many accolades, she was recently named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Republic of France and the 2012 Composer of the Year by Musical America. In conjunction with her 50th Season of creating and performing, she was appointed the 2014-15 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall. In September 2015, Ms. Monk received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama.
