About the show: 

Ensemble Dal Niente teams up with genre-bending percussionists Beyond This Point for an interdisciplinary performance of sound, theater, and music. The centerpiece of the show is Simon Steen-Andersen’s Black Box Music for percussion solo, amplified box, 15 instruments and video. According to the composer, “The starting point is the classical soloist-conductor, only in this case, the conducting and solo part are one and the same. The setting is a traditional theatre stage with curtains, props and light; only in this case, the stage is also an instrument. Black Box Music could be said to be a deconstruction of conducting and puppet theatre as well as an exploration and exploitation of the audio/visual relations inherent in conducting and staging. The “grand show” is in three movements, starting with ‘Ouverture’ and ‘Slow Middle Movement’ and then finishing off with a festive, pompous, 'Self-Imploding Finale’.” Dal Niente will also give the Chicago premiere of Michelle Lou’s new work for chamber ensemble and electronics.

About Beyond This Point:

Beyond This Point is an exploratory collaboration seeking to investigate resonances and intersections across several practices including theater, movement, media/film, non-traditional musical forms, sculpture, text, and installations both static and performative.  

The collaboration aims to engage diverse audiences on multiple levels through its exploration of resonances between artistic mediums with a goal of developing a platform in which to create works that are intrinsically coalesced along these resonances from their point of inception. www.beyondthispoint.org
