Meredith Monk and Anne Waldman
Two iconic women known for their mesmerizing stage presences join forces for a singular evening of music, movement, and poetry. Anne Waldman is a prolific poet, playwright, activist, and the author of more than 40 collections of poetry and poetics. Offering an evening in three parts, Waldman begins with a performative reading from her “Entanglement Variations,” with visuals of paintings by Pat Steir and sound composition by Ambrose Bye. Meredith Monk then performs several selections of her work with members of her Vocal Ensemble. The evening culminates in an original collaborative duet between Monk and Waldman.
