Event description

Description

On Sunday, March 24, 2019, 8pm at Areté (67 West St, Brooklyn NY), contemporary percussionist Nikki Joshi presents a night of avant-garde theatre music, featuring The Yellow Wallpaper- a brand new commission for theatrical percussion by composer Matt Curlee. Based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s 1892 feminist short story of the same name, this innovative new piece includes elements such as dramatic staging, storytelling, and choreography. With Gilman's gothic text at the forefront, this work explores the concept of societal attitudes towards women's mental health. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.

This performance will also feature works by Rolf Wallin, Annea Lockwood, Christopher Adler, and Georges Aperghis.
