Kaki King: The Neck is a Bridge to the Body

$25 Public

8:00 pm

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours. She brings to The ArtsCenter her latest project, The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, a visionary multi-media synesthetic performance that uses projection mapping to reimagine the surface of her guitar as the stage for a luminous exploration of the mythology of the instrument.

 

“King’s latest project…accentuates the guitar as a shape-shifter, gliding across genres such as jazz, shoegazing, Latin roots, and heavy alternative rock across…a spectacle unlike any other.”

– PopMatters
