The CFA presents a screening of two Meredith Monk Films: Ellis Island and Book of Days. Meredith Monk is a multidisciplinary artist; she is a composer, singer, and director/choreographer and creator of new opera, music-theater works, films and installations. Ms. Monk will be joining us for a week long residency following this screening where she will perform a work-in-progress of her latest work, Cellular Songs. Monk's work, which she has been creating for the past 50 years, is timeless. 

Monk's 1985 film, Ellis Island, and her 1988 film, Book of Days, are filmed in both color and black and white. Visuals are accompanied by her own compositions, yet the composer also gives silence its own voice. Please join us for an evening of film, music, dance, and artistic exploration!
