Glorious Ravage | Two previews at the de Young Museum

glorious ravage

Tonight, Lisa Mezzacappa presents a preview of Glorious Ravage‪ (MAP 2014)‬ at San Francisco’s de Young Museum!

In the second of two August previews, Mezzacappa leads members of her ensemble in a series of site-specific performances in and around the museum. Glorious Ravage premieres this September and October at REDCAT as part of the Angel City Jazz Festival and at San Francisco’s Brava Theater Center.

Glorious Ravage is a panoramic free jazz song cycle that features a large ensemble of stellar California improvisers performing new music in dialogue with films created by Bay Area moving image artists Janis Crystal Lipzin, Kathleen Quillian, Alfonso Alvarez and Konrad Steiner. The program takes as its inspiration the adventures and writings of lady explorers of the 19th century who trekked to the wildest parts of the earth, to escape, to discover, and to lose themselves.
