José will be in studio at Triskelion Arts & Chez Bushwick (Brooklyn) physicalizing the visual ideas, concepts, and dance for his first visual EP LQQK. Rehearsals will be open the first week of April.
Meredith Monk has spent more than five decades exploring and expanding the capacity of that most essential instrument: the human voice. Returning to BAM after the ecstatic hymn to compassion On Behalf of Nature (2014 Next Wave), Monk and the four women of her peerless vocal ensemble present a new work, continuing their investigation of the interconnected, ineffable relationship between humans and the natural world.
Pairing voice with movement, instrumentation, and a site-specific video installation, Cellular Songs contemplates the fundamental unit of life and its relation to the universe. Drawing inspiration from biological processes—layering, division, replication, mutation—Monk looks to underlying systems in nature that can serve as a prototype for human behavior in our tumultuous world.
Music and direction by Meredith Monk

"The “body sings and the voice dances” in this program that captures the kinetic energy and pioneering philosophy of Monk’s six-decade exploration of the human voice as an instrument, transmitted and luminously present in this multidimensional, multiperceptual work."
