The world premiere of Meredith Monk and Nepalese singer Ani Choying Drolma performing an evening of works, each offering an engagement with art as spiritual practice.
Meredith Monk is considered one of the most significant and influential visionaries in the performing arts of the past fifty years. A composer, singer, director, filmmaker and installation artist, she is considered a pioneer of what is now called “extended vocal technique” and “interdisciplinary performance”. Also a Buddhist practitioner, Monk performed a Vocal Offering for His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the World Festival of Sacred Music in 1999, and has led numerous workshops on Voice as Practice throughout the world. In September 2015, Ms. Monk received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama.
