We Are All Going in Different Directions
Sunday, September 21, 2014
Branches—named after one of John Cage’s later works—is a new project at Bard. Curated by Conservatory faculty Sō Percussion, it is an experiment in hybrid arts. Music, theater, video, dance, visual art, and other media are explored in the spirit of openness and adventure that Sō Percussion brings to its own work, which is directly inspired by Cage’s. We Are All Going in DIfferent Directions captures that spirit in a performance with Bard musicians that includes classic Cage scores and new original works.
Branches is a multiyear partnership involving the Fisher Center, the Conservatory, and the John Cage Trust to highlight Sō Percussion’s integration into the artistic and academic community of Bard College.
