Kirkland Performance Center presents...
SEI: Kaki King with Tamar Eisenman
- Tuesday, October 11, 2022 – 7:00 pm
- Adult: $41.00
Kaki has always viewed the guitar from a different angle…
In her continuous quest to explore the outer bounds of what is possible for the guitar, Kaki King has created SEI, a new full-length performance piece where guitar movement takes over the entire stage. In SEI (which means “six” in Italian), guitarists become dancers, coordinating their whole bodies to perform the rigors of both choreography and composition. Multiple guitars on stands are spaced out strategically, in a design allowing for music and movement to be created between them. In SEI, the relationship between the players is revealed musically and physically, a progression of distance and space—like the progression between the six individual strings of the guitar.
Ticket price includes all taxes and fees.
