Meredith Monk: Cellular Songs

Layering, replication, division, mutation—the cellular world is complex, often reassuringly cyclical, and an inspiration for the possibilities of human behavior in this music-theatre piece from Meredith Monk. Cellular Songs is the newest in a series of Monk's works that explore our interdependent relationship with nature while seeking to evoke that which cannot be expressed in words. Monk and the women of her acclaimed Vocal Ensemble, with participation from girls in the Central Illinois Youth Chorus, conjure the circle of life in Cellular Songs by incorporating vocal and instrumental music, movement, light, and film to create a contemplative, playful, and hope-filled experience that once again reveals the elegance and purity of one of the most unique and influential artists of our time.
