'The Desire/Divinity Project' - Marisa Michelson and Constellation Chor at historical Judson Memorial Church - February 1, 2, 3 @ 8PM - GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!


February 1, 2 & 3 at Judson Memorial Church.


Marisa Michelson's Desire/Divinity Project embodies the joyful and aching tension between earthly and divine love by musicalizing the Western worlds oldest erotic poem ("Song of Songs") and Anne Carson's visceral translation of Sappho's fragments. Fifteen singer-movers, members of Constellation Chor, explore singing as a way of merging the interior self with the exterior world. A mixture of live music video, opera, oratorio, and ritual, Desire/Divinity enlivens the sensual and the sacred, the body and the spirit.
