Join us on February 9th at 7:30pm as ABCirque pairs up with Brendan Speltz to produce a unique adaptation of Steve Reich's modern minimalist masterwork "Different Trains" presented at the old Bushwick warehouse: The Muse Brooklyn.
Reich wrote “Different Trains” while contemplating his childhood train trips in the 1940’s between New York and Los Angeles. As a Jew, it occurred to him that similar train trips in Europe during that time had a very different and haunting implication. In each of the three movements he explores America during the War, Europe during the War, and after the War with a soundscape of strings and pre-recorded electronics to both devastating and profoundly uplifting effect.
ABCirque, directed by Angela Buccinni Butch, will perform an imaginary choreographic drama through the use of the redoubtable German Wheel accompanied by Speltz's string quartet and electronics playing Steve Reich’s “Different Trains.”
