Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble and Bang on a Can All-Stars

MEMORY GAME

As part of a special focus programme on Meredith Monk, Rewire presents this performance of MEMORY GAME by Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble and Bang on a Can All-Stars. Drawing from Monk’s extensive catalogue of groundbreaking compositional work, New York chamber outfit Bang on a Can All-Stars joins forces with Monk and members of her ensemble to present nine reorchestrated pieces from Monk's varied theatrical productions, most prominently The Games: a science fiction opera. As the title implies, it’s not only a fitting retrospective of Monk’s lasting artistic triumphs, but also a compelling reminder how Monk’s music can play with our expectations in poignant and compelling ways.
