New College is exploring making music with the body—and without the body—in this concert, performed three times (because of space limitations) in New College’s intimate Black Box Theater. Vinko Globokar’s unsettling Corporel, performed by NMNC Director Stephen Miles, is played by the performer on his own body. Luciano Berio’s Thema (Omaggio a Joyce) is a recorded piece based on the Sirens episode of Ulysses, and dancer Xiao-Xuan Yang Dancigers will offer a physical interpretation. NMNC Producer R. L. Silver will then perform Roger Marsh’s Dum, which fragments and reconfigures texts and also involves hurling pieces of metal into a bucket. In between these solo works, New College students will dance to electronic music pieces composed by fellow students.
Pre-Concert talks are at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 17, 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 18 and 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 19. The Artist Conversation is at 5 p.m. on Nov. 16. Subscriptions for the entire series are $60 and tickets for individual performances are $15; Artist Conversations are free and open to the public.
