Mind on Fire * Andrew Bernstein * Karagoz Theater Company
Lovely Lane United Methodist Church
2200 St Paul St, Baltimore, MD 21218, USA
Mind on Fire sings! Presenting the music of Meredith Monk, Laura Steenberge, Eve de Castro-Robinson, and a premiere by James Young, we are performing our first ever choral concert. Castro-Robinson's "Chaos of Delight III" turns the choir into birds of the gardens of paradise, trilling and clicking. Steenberge's "Lucretius, my Lucretius" sets the titular philosopher poet in modern context. Monk's "Earth Seen from Above" considers the cosmic unity of all people from the clarifying perspective of space.
Prodigious saxophonist and member of the band Horse Lords, Andrew Bernstein will play an electrifying solo set. On his latest album, An Exploded View of Time "His playing is ecstatic and discursive, tracing out minimal melodic lines that are at once athletic feats and delightfully free."
Karagoz Theater Company, a Turkish theater group practicing a style of 500-year-old Anatolian shadow puppet theater. They have garnered great acclaim over short time frame, performing the La Mama Puppet Festival, the Great Plains Puppet Train, the National Puppet Festival, and at Baltimore’s own Black Cherry Puppet Theater. Founder Ayhan Hulagu will be presenting “The Magic Tree,” the first piece of Karagoz-style theater presented on Broadway.
