The world premiere of Meredith Monk and Nepalese singer Ani Choying Drolma performing an evening of works, each offering an engagement with art as spiritual practice.
Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films and installations. Considered one of the most significant creative forces in the performing arts of the past fifty years, she
is a pioneer of what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance”. Celebrated internationally, her work has been presented at major venues throughout the world. In September 2015, Ms. Monk received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama.
Ani Choying Drolma, is a Nepalese Buddhist nun who performs worldwide singing traditional and modernized Buddhist chants as well as Nepali and Tibetan songs to support her numerous humanitarian efforts including the education of young girls, care of the elderly, and providing medical services for the underprivileged and dispossessed through her Nun’s Welfare Foundation. Her autobiography Singing for Freedom is an international bestseller and she is Nepal’s first ever appointed UNICEF ambassador. Meredith Monk and Ani Choying Drolma first met in 2005 while performing at the opening of the McGuire Theater at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, MN.
“... a musician of boundless imagination and vision.” - The Plain Dealer on Meredith Monk
“Drolma’s voice may sound like a mountain stream, but underneath, her passions are like a storm on top of Mt. Everest.” - NPR
