A vocalist and instrument builder whose work reflects an elemental approach to her medium, Lesley Flanigan performs new work with handmade speaker feedback instruments alongside amplified voice, creating an intimate connection between gesture and sound. Joining her is Lucky Dragons, appearing as solo performer with Sarah Rara, who return to The Kitchen for the first time in nearly a decade with a performance based on explorations of auditory illusions, voice, and synthesis. 

December 3, 8pm
Tickets $15
