Exploding Pianist Kathleen Supové confronts confinement, using some of her own favorite objects as three-dimensional graphic scores, “performing” them as well as utilizing them.
In the program’s second half, she will ask the audience to loan or give her objects of their own, so she might “play” them, too. What objects symbolize (or help you escape) confinement?
Confinement/Escape is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
