World Premiere!
Intimate, unfiltered voices become one.

Intimate, unfiltered voices become one.

No microphones, no electronic meddling, only the resonant voices that come from the bodies of the performers are heard and felt. The audience is arranged about the entire floor of the theater. Singers move in geometric patterns throughout the audience, their movements become the sound design—like placing speakers about a room, only the speakers are mobile performers.

A journey inward into the individual and outward to include the entire group—audience and performers—who share the space together as one greater entity. An immersive, artistic experience that taps the singing voices within us all, Close Music for Bodies connects its audiences to the transcendent gift of singing, and the sonic community of a group voice.

Note: Close Music for Bodies is presented in promenade, meaning the audience stands and walks for the duration of the performance. Specialty seating is available for those unable to do so. Audiences check their bags and remove their shoes prior to entering the performance.
