À propos

Song/Book is a multidisciplinary performance piece that combines live and pre-recorded music, arrangements of Yiddish and American folk songs, recorded voices, and a series of hand-made  artist books and crankies.

A short-form solo work of 23 minutes, Song/Book intersperses five folk song arrangements and one original composition for piano and recorded voices. Each song has its accompanying visual component: a hand-made book, in which each page slowly turns to illustrate the song lyrics; a crankie box that winds along; and finally, shadow silhouettes illuminated and manipulated on stage. 

A small projector, attached to a wire camera, magnifies the small details of the books into wall-sized projections, while adding another visuospatial dimension to the mise en scene.
