New Nothing: Zs + Little Women
Friday October 30, 8 PM

"These days, anything goes..." Zs, the scariest band from EMPAC's Between a Rock and a Tiny Bell concert, returns on Halloween (well ok, a day before) for a careening set of "[sputtering] Morse code dots of percussion and saxophone" (Ben Sisario, New York Times) as part of the New Nothing series. Opening will be Little Women, a quartet whose ghost notes and violent disassembling of their instruments concoct riotous sets that run the gamut from pop to free jazz to noise and back again.

Sophie Kahn & Lisa Parra

Illuminating the physical presence and disappearance of the body, this work addresses the questions: What happens to the body in motion when it becomes a still image? And what becomes of that image when it is returned to the moving body whence it came?
