WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

As part of REDCAT's Fall 2008 season, CalArts presents the Los Angeles premiere of Songs of Ascension, a new evening-length work from composer, singer, director/choreographer Meredith Monk and the renowned visual artist Ann Hamilton, for five performances only. This multimedia performance, a combination of Monk's pristine, primal music, vocals, movement and her iconoclastic theatricality, along with Hamilton's raw, sensuous video imagery, features Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble, plus a string quartet led by violinist Todd Reynolds, and a 20-person choir composed of members of the voice program at the Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts.
