Anne Waldman performance with Meredith Monk
Two iconic woman known for their mesmerizing stage presences join forces for a singular evening of music, movement, and poetry. “One of contemporary music’s great innovators” (The Classical Review), Meredith Monk is renowned for her extraordinary vocal technique, and her pioneering compositions have solidified her reputation as a startlingly original and intrepid artist. Anne Waldman is a prolific poet, playwright, activist, and author of more than 40 collections of poetry. An evening in three parts, Waldman begins with a performative reading of her poem, “Entanglement Variations,” with visuals of paintings by Pat Steir and sound composition by Ambrose Bye. Meredith Monk will then perform several selections of work with members of her Vocal Ensemble. The evening culminates in a original collaborative duet between Monk and Waldman.
