Wet Ink Ensemble: Kate Soper’s Voices from the Killing Jar
Kate Soper‘s Ipsa Dixit, which NMNC presented as a work-in-progress in 2015, went on to be a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. Wet Ink returns to NMNC to perform Voices from the Killing Jar, another of Soper’s theatrical works. This work from 2010–12 depicts a series of female protagonists caught up in “hopeless situations, inescapable fates, impossible fantasies, and unlucky circumstances.” Soper writes, “The women in ‘Voices’ are bound together by their pain, their silence, their anger, their perception, connected not just via juxtaposition, but through their communal duress. As the narrator of their stories, I empower them by resurrecting their voices, which echo and forge connections across the movements, and by bringing them to life before an audience. I inhabit these voices in part by recalling the emotions and mental states which are the catalysts for their speech and song.” NMNC is thrilled to end our season with these vital musicians performing a work of such timely resonance.
Pre-concert talk by NMNC Director Stephen Miles at 7:30.
