Lucy Dhegrae: 'I Was Breathing'
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The Processing Series, from vocalist and 2019-2020 Artist-in-Residence Lucy Dhegrae, was sprung from a prompt to four composers: write a piece for voice that deals with an aspect of trauma recovery. This four-part concert series features works by Eve Beglarian, Angélica Negrón, Osnat Netzer, and Katherine Young, written for and performed by Lucy Dhegrae. Lucy has been praised for her "vocal versatility and an omnivorous curiosity" (New York Times). In addition to her work as the founder and director of the Resonant Bodies Festival, an international presenter of boundary-pushing contemporary music vocalists, Lucy is an active advocate for the anti-sexual violence organization RAINN. The third concert in The Processing Series asks: What is the daily at-home experience of a body holding PTSD? Works by Yoko Ono, Pauline Oliveros, Alison Knowles, Pamela Z, Meredith Monk, Kate Soper, and Luciano Berio explore themes of self-care and domesticity. Interludes that draw from self-defense classes, the writings of Audre Lorde, and EMDR therapy weave through the evening, culminating in the world premiere of How to Hold by Katherine Young, which combines several healing modes (EMDR, meditation, physical vibration, group therapy) in an instruction-based score for voice, violin, percussion, and electronics.
