June 20 - Din of Shadows VI: Mortal Chorus

Our 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. 
The programme includes two premieres: a self-reflective mixed media trio by Angela Blumberg and Julia Mermelstein, and a nomadic sound 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.
