Meredith Monk has long been uncategorizable. A vocalist, composer, choreographer, theater artist, and mover, she’s most of all a visionary whose works at once transport us to a primal past and an irrepressible future. In this large-scale theater piece, her first in more than a decade, she and her chorus of women move and sing to a film and video installation in an exploration of environmental devastation and resilience. While the work’s essence lies in the details, and Monk’s approach to exploring the microscopic in her singular way, the overall experience will be cosmic: aural, kinetic, and mind-blowingly transformative.
