Thingamajigs Performance Group, East Bay mainstays of the homemade instrument underground, bring us )MA(, a new performance inspired by the exhibition Silence. Thingamajigs, joined by special guests Dandelion Dance Theater, uses concepts from Noh theater, focusing on the spaces between notes, distances between parts, and a musical vocabulary of invisible actions. In addition, Rio Vander Stahl’s chamber ensemble explores the introspective stillness in Schumann's first string quartet, and a video piece from Christopher Ariza presents the “animated information abduction and reduction” of broadcast news.
is made possible by Ann Hatch/Tin Man Fund, the Thomas J. Long Foundation, and the continued support of the BAM/PFA Trustees. Special thanks to media sponsors East Bay Express and San Francisco Bay Guardian.
