String Theory is remounting their aural and visual performance piece, Remembering Water, following sold out shows in 2015. The performance features the group’s signature giant harps which transform architecture into musical instruments.
Remembering Water is a seventy-minute, multi-media performance work featuring newly invented instruments, each created by String Theory. These include Harness Harps and the FIN Harp. Culminating in a new exploration of String Theory’s combining of artistic mediums, the performance is interwoven with dance, original music, projections and their signature giant Harps. Remembering Water is loosely inspired by the photographs of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison from their book, The Architect’s Brother.
This event will also mark the release of String Theory’s new EP Remembering Water.
The performance space is transformed by String Theory’s sculptural instruments (their Giant Harps), and is energized by performers with wearable instruments, percussion sculptures, cello, bass, guitar, vocals and electronics. Eleven performers — musicians and contemporary dancers — will take to the stage.
