Joyce UNLEASHED: Personal Symphonic Moment
Finnish artist Elina Pirinen makes her U.S. debut with her award-winning trio, Personal Symphonic Moment. In this on-stage autopsy of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, declared in 1942 to be an indictment of Fascism, Pirinen uses a personal approach to examine the concept of living within the current “zeitgeist,” leading to an exploration of eroticism, shame, danger and excess. The result is a raw and arresting work.
This work is presented by The Joyce Theater as a part UNLEASHED, an ongoing series of experimental works presented off-site.
