Poet-performer Adeena Karasick does a performance called Salomé: Woman of Valor, which reframes the story of Salomé with a feminist-Jewish perspective. The show takes place in New York City on Thursday, August 13 and will be accompanied by the musical compositions (Klezmer / Bhangra/ Free Jazz) of Grammy award-winning composer, Frank London; see our event listing for details.
At this year’s performance of the work, vispo collaborations with Jim Andrews will accompany the show, and will be available to audience members on their smartphones. The visual accompaniment consists of five stir-fry texts and 17 “dbCinemations” that that use Karasick’s slides as a base. The former can be found online and interacted with – use your finger or mouse to scroll and float through the text as it transforms – and the latter will be projected on screen during part of Karasick’s performance.
