No Longer Showing.
In this new hybrid-media performance, Maize Mantis, Sergei Tcherepnin continues his exploration of the materiality of sound and its psychological effects on the listener. Part theatre, dance, concert, and exhibition, this performance takes inspiration from Lucy Dodd’s recently published book, The Genesis of a Painting, and Sergei Diaghilev’s Feu d’Artifice, a light show played on a geometric set to music by Igor Stravinsky. Revolving around the Maize Mantis, a mythic creature born of plants and shadows, the multisensory performance takes place in two acts and is divided by 12 scores. Thirteen performers, including Tcherepnin, will present this new work with paintings by Dodd and Kerstin Brätsch, costumes created in collaboration with Hanna Törnudd, and lighting by Zack Tinkelman.
Organized by Tim Griffin as part of "From Minimalism into Algorithm"
