Tickets & Info Here! (Multiple Performances)

the whisper opera, with words and music by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lang and direction and design by Jim Findlay, is performed by ICE with the musicians, singer, and audience enclosed in an intimate onstage set, and is performed almost entirely in whispers. Lang explores the question: “what if a piece were so quiet and so personal to the performers that you needed to be right next them or you would hear almost nothing. The only way this piece can be received is if you are there, in person, listening very closely.”  Following the success of the premiere at Mostly Mozart in 2013, ICE has brought this work to audiences around the US and Europe.  Don't miss its dramatic return to New York!

PAN!

Tickets & Info Here! (multiple shows)

 

The latest iteration of Claire Chase’s 23-year Density 2036 project, PAN is a 90-minute participatory performance for flutist, electronics, and mass community participation in the form of a large ensemble of non-professional or trained players/collaborators. 

Composed by Marcos Balter, directed by Douglas Fitch, and produced by Jane M. Saks and Project&, the piece uses seven tableaux exploring the life of the god Pan, one of only two Greek deities said to have been put to death. It marshals myth to articulate and explore the tensions of our contemporary lives and world. The experience and creative participation attempt to demonstrate, rather than speculate, how music-making allows for societies and communities to create together, shape space, question, reflect, re-visit, re-order and arrive in new and re-imagined locations again and again.
