On Behalf of Nature: Ecological Artwork

Sustainability Series

Meredith Monk

  • Artistic Director of the House Foundation; founder of Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble; Composer, Singer, Director/Choreographer

A pioneer in "extended vocal technique" and "interdisciplinary performance," Meredith Monk creates works that thrive at the intersection of music and movement, image and object, light and sound. Her groundbreaking exploration of the voice as an instrument, as an eloquent language in and of itself, expands the boundaries of musical composition, creating landscapes of sound that unearth feelings, energies, and memories for which there are no words.

In this talk, Monk will discuss “On Behalf of Nature," her new work inspired by writers and researchers who have sounded the alarm on the precarious state of our global ecology. Lunch will be served.
