Invisible Anatomy: ILLUMINATION
Written and performed by Invisible Anatomy: Ian Gottlieb, Paul Kerekes, Brendon Randall-Myers, Ben Wallace, Fay Kueen Wang
Directed by Michael McQuilken
Tribeca New Music is pleased to present the cutting-edge new performance ensemble Invisible Anatomy as they premiere five new works written for the 2019 Festival. This groundbreaking troupe composes original works designed to be staged and performed theatrically in a unique physical space, Nancy Manocherian’s - The Cell, in NYC.
Illumination weaves together new music by each of Invisible Anatomy’s five composer-performers into an evening-length, conceptually unified piece drawing on classical, pop, jazz, experimental rock, performance art, and theater, with visual and theatrical elements by theater artist Michael McQuilken.
The show explores the practical, aesthetic, and ideological applications of light - our primary means of orienting ourselves and conveying information - as a way to examine conflicting view points, the limits of language and communication, and moments when perceptual information does not match up with our expectations and understanding.
