Exciting news! We'll be at Town Hall and Symphony Hall in Birmingham on February 27th for a new performance of Terry Riley's In C! 🎫

“Our collaboration rewrites the rule book. A stage groaning with talent, at least three quarters of it disabled; Riley's egalitarian brand of minimalism writ large through gesture - sonic and sculptural.
