The Shadow Ensemble Live Scores Passion of Joan of Arc

Feb 28, 2018

Ryan Cockerham's Shadow Ensemble reunites with the Trillium Salon Series for an intimate one-time concert at Artist's Laboratory Theater to live improv score Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent classic The Passion of Joan of Arc

The Ensemble's ever-changing lineup is much smaller for the evening's totally improvised score, utilizing primarily violins, synthesizers and filtered vocal stylings to reflect the film's sparse visual landscape.

"I actually think this is exponentially better executed than any film we've done before," says Cockerham. "You've got to ask yourself, sometimes adding is taking away. So how do we add to this without taking away? It's for the audience to decide."

This Trillium Salon Series begins at 7 p.m., Sat. March 3 at Artist's Laboratory Theatre in Fayetteville.
