Palaver Strings, in collaboration with local theatre company, Strange News, brings to life excerpts from Kafka's Metamorphosis, Poe's The Telltale Heart, Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper, and Marlowe's Dr. Faustus. Each selection will be paired with complementary musical excerpts composed and arranged by Alexander Goodin. The two ensembles collaborate fully to close the show on Frederic Rzewski's Coming Together. From tragic traps to comic ones, horrific traps to romantic ones, we will delve into ideas of confinement and deceit - literal and metaphorical, physical and psychological.
*This program is part of Palaver String’s residency at Boston Center for the Arts.
