Programmatic Updates to Miya Masaoka’s Armory Performances (including interactive work with plants)
The program for Miya Masaoka’s upcoming performances at Park Avenue Armory on Wednesday, March 13, have been updated. In place of The Long Arc of Time Noh opera, the program will now include a number of new works by Masaoka, performed with her close collaborators and colleagues. The evening will present the premiere of Songs of Lost Dreams, a new work written for soprano Kamala Sankaram and percussionist Chris Nappi. The Momenta Quartet will perform Survival, along with guest violinist Clara Kim, and bassists Robert Black, James Ilgenfritz, Shayna Dulberger, and Zach Rowden join us to perform Four Moons of Pluto. Masaoka will also perform her work Don’t Kill Plants (Leaves are Murder, Meat is Murder). The program concludes with a performance of States of Being, States of Becoming by S.E.M. Ensemble, with Petr Kotik conducting.
