Look + Listen Festival: No Instruments Required


The 2019 Look + Listen Festival closes with No Instruments Required, music generated by the human body featuring tap-dance interpretations of minimalist classics and vocal explorations of Depression-era America.

The Bang Group presents experimental tap reinterpretations of Steve Reich’s Clapping Music, Morton Feldman’s For John Cage, and a new work by Pauline Kim Harris written for the company.

And the vocal quartet Quince Ensemble performs new works from their series “This a Changin’ World” with original ballads inspired by Woodie Guthrie and the 1930s Dust Bowl migration of American workers.

The program is paired with innovative domestic designs by The Invisible Dog artist-in-residence Marlo & Isaure.
