601 South Broad Street (at Broad Street)
A cello solo alternates between inaudible notes played with large visual gestures and loud, cacophonous sections performed in complete darkness. A musical ensemble plays a score, then puts their instruments down, and plays it again with only movement. German composer Helmut Lachenmann's physically demanding compositions form the basis for French choreographer Xavier Le Roy's poetic and fascinating version of a contemporary music concert from the point of view of someone obsessed with movement. Musicians include members of the Austrian new music ensemble Klangforum Wien.
September 16 & 17 at 8 p.m.
