FRINGEPVD line up at the RISD Museum for Design the Night:
5:30 pm and 7 pm: Bach's Box - at The Radeke Garden
6 pm: Shakespeare in Concert - on the Terrace
6:30 pm: The Woodhull Project - in Pendleton House
Shakespeare in Concert (Bard the Band)
A concert-style performance, showcasing original music written to Shakespeare’s lyrics from his body of work and inspired by his plays and characters, bringing Shakespeare’s words into contemporary genres of music, and to give further voice and perspective to his characters. The piece will ultimately be a combination of music performance and scenes/monologues from Shakespeare’s complete works.
Consistently genre-defying, the Antonio Forte Process is a nebulous avant-garde collective specializing in original and improvisatory music that is process-driven and always changing. Bach’s Box will be a meeting point of the aural and visual arts: the sounds of a painting being made will be amplified, manipulated, and processed live, so that both pieces are created contemporaneously
The Woodhull Project
Nearly a century after her death, Victoria Woodhull continues to fascinate. This one woman show explores what would happen if Victoria – a woman who ran for president in 1872 – were here to see today’s election. A blend of commentary on women’s equality and politics with an historical account of this remarkable train blazer, The Woodhull Project asks, “Have we made progress?” A spiritualist, advocate of free love, and self-made woman, Victoria’s own words bring her into the 21st century, to continue the good fight.
