Presented by Boston Center for the Arts, directed and choreographed by Jessi Stegall, “The Theremin Vignettes” is an evening-length dance-theater production set to and inspired by the music and life of thereminist Clara Rockmore.
Despite being credited as the best theremin player to have ever lived, Clara, a Lithuanian Jewish woman and music virtuoso, remains under-recognized for her immense contribution to electronic music.
“The Theremin Vignettes” is an ode to Clara and her beautifully bizarre music. Set in the form of choreographic vignettes, the piece explores themes of grief, remembrance and devotion through theatrical interpretations of real events from Clara’s life. Each vignette is set to one of her arrangements of classical scores for theremin.
Audiences will walk away with gratitude for the bizarre and a new favorite music genre.+ More... - Less...
