Join us for an unquiet evening of music, theater, and video in this first of three L@TE events presented in conjunction with the exhibition Silence. UC Berkeley’s own BareTroupe performs a selection of scenes and songs that touch upon themes of quietude and isolation, including excerpts from Spring Awakening and Rent. Instrumentalists Rio Vander Stahl and Alia McKean combine forces with dance group The Defiance Project to explore the use of silence in the music of Bach and Arvo Pärt. And an experimental video work by Christopher Ariza abducts, obstructs, and obscures media newsfeeds.
