Two fearless legends of NYC performance come together at Danspace Project for their first ever collaboration.

Meredith Monk, currently celebrating her 50th Season and one “one of contemporary music’s great innovators” (Classical Review), is a leader in interdisciplinary performance and an originator of extended vocal technique. As part of the evening Monk will be joined by members of her Vocal Ensemble to present selections from a new work-in-progress, Cellular Songs, a lyrical meditation based in part on her study of epigenetics.

“Anne Waldman’s work is the antithesis of stasis…She is a force of nature…a flame” (Quarterly Conversation). Waldman, a poet, author, playwright, and activist, co-founded (with Allen Ginsberg) the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University and The Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery.

Both notorious for their mesmerizing stage presences, Monk and Waldman’s paths have crossed many times; this is the first time they will appear on stage together. Danspace is thrilled to present this singular night of new work, solo sets, and some delightful surprises.
