Here we are. What are we going to do?

In this new commission Eliza Ladd (Associate Professor of Movement at the FSU/Asolo Conservatory) in collaboration with New College students, will create a score of “Live Sound Action” (her theatrical approach to composition and performance) to be performed in the New College Black Box Theater. Ladd’s approach, at once visual, aural, and physical, combines the sounds of objects and human movement with layers of primitive voice and song—reflecting our primordial musicality and reviving the original function of performance as a way to know ourselves, and to experience our birthright as creators.

his original composition will be influenced by a theme of migration, what gets carried over time across place, and the act of searching, listening and thriving as it manifests in the flight of birds, the walking of humans, and on an elemental scale of geology.

What is the sound image of our human contraption moving “forward” in time and space? What is the moment of tigers above and tigers below? How do we locate ourselves?

Pre-concert talk by NMNC Director Stephen Miles at 7:30 (Fri. and Sat.) and 2:30 (Sun.).
