About This Show

The International Contemporary Ensemble returns to NYU Skirball with a program of works by composer/pianist Anthony Davis and composer/vocalist Leila Adu-Gilmore. The evening will feature Adu-Gilmore’s "Mahakala Oratorio" (2020-23, world premiere of the live version) and "Alyssum" (2014); and Davis’s "Wayang No. II" (Shadowdance) (1982), "Clonetics" (1983), and a special solo performance by Davis. Drawing on an ultra-cosmopolitan range of musical and cultural sources, Leila Adu-Gilmore and Anthony Davis exemplify some of the many ways in which Afrodiasporic new music becomes revealed as an intercultural, multigenerational space of innovation that offers new subjects, histories, and identities.
