Cellular Songs with Meredith Monk

West Coast Premiere 

"At once visceral and ethereal, raw and rapt, Monk's works banish the spurious complexities of urban life and reveal a kind of underground civilization, one that sings, dances, and meditates on timeless forces." —The New Yorker

Meredith Monk has spent more than five decades exploring and expanding the capacity of that most essential instrument – the human voice. Cellular Songs is the newest in a series of her music theater pieces that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke the ineffable.
