WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2, 8PM, FREE
RIVER, RIVER, RIVER by Shannon Stewart. Paralleling the tumultuous arc of the creative process, in “river, river, river,” Stewart simultaneously excavates family history, ecological devastation, and the circuitous ways these things are woven into being a performance artist.
Following Stewart’s performance we will have a live set from the Davis/Verploegh Duo. The Davis/Verploegh Duo is the free improv duo of Seth Andrew Davis on electric guitar and Evan Verploegh on drums/percussion. The duo utilitizes elements of free improvisation, free jazz, electro-acoustic music, and contemporary composition techniques that informs their performance practice.
