Marci Rabe and Kristy Farkas

Date: July 20, 2002, 8 p.m.

Artists' Talk: July 27 at noon

Composers Marci Rabe and Kristy Farkas confronted the creative act of composition in a performance that embraced the lasting impression of memories. The merging of individually composed musical gestures melded with an evocative visual performance that converged the audience with the performance space. Invoked by intricate subtleties, the voice, double bass and percussion instruments created a delicate, yet sometimes crass, spectrum of sound. The naked body was explored as sculpture and canvas to express intimate experiences and connections with others. Colour, music, movement, and touch formed born naked—art in progress.
