A playground of chamber music, theatre, poetry, and performance art, Eighth Blackbird (8BB) presents composition as explanation, a distinctly marvelous happening not to be missed. Directed by Anne Bogart and text by Gertrude Stein, composition as explanation is based on Stein’s essay of the same name. By lifting Stein’s words off the page, 8BB creates layers of interpretation that reveal the human relationship with art from an entirely unprecedented perspective.
