Abbot Adam: Evensong
No Face Performance Group
Wed, Mar 18
Studio Series: works made for intimate spaces.
“We’re really excited by this combination of purity, devotion, ecstasy, sex, desire, violence, horror and melodrama found in paintings from the lives of saints, mystics, and laypeople.” Jaime Maseda, co-creator and performer of Abbot Adam: Evensong
Earth and all stars!
Prepare for the vernal equinox with a liturgy of evening prayer brought to you by Sisters Sibyl and Sistine. This concert event contemplates the great mysteries with cabaret-like canticle, confessional, and karaoke. Songs of deviant medieval nuns, devotion, and desire abound.
Abbot Adam is a cycle of shows that features Jaime Maseda and Mark McCloughan as two sister nuns steeped in Medieval traditions venturing into wildly new performance territory. Since 2007, the Philadelphia-based No Face has created shows that take many forms, from choreography to theater to installation performance.
