Syracuse University’s Arts Engage welcomes the sextet on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at the Carrier Theater in the Civic Center at 7 p.m.
The Chicago-based, Grammy-award winning group combines the sounds of a string quartet, a rock band and a storefront theater company. Its adaptation of Schoenberg’s “Pierrot lunaire” continues eighth blackbird’s commitment to performances that blur the boundaries between music and theater.
Directed by renowned New York choreographer Mark DeChiazza, the production features soprano Lucy Shelton, dancer Elyssa Dole and eighth blackbird percussionist Matthew Duvall. The musicians of eighth blackbird perform the challenging work entirely from memory.
