Tanya Tagaq and Kronos Quartet: In Concert

March 17 @ 7:00 pm

$5 – $40

Tanya Tagaq, in celebration of Kronos Quartet: Five Decades tour, invites her long-time collaborators Kronos Quartet to premiere their new collaborative work, commissioned by Brown Arts Institute. The evening’s program also includes performances by Tagaq with a groundbreaking Inuit throat singing choir featuring Nancy Mike, Cynthia Pitsiulak, Charlotte Qamaniq, and Varna Marianne Nielsen, music performed by Kronos Quartet, as well as Tagaq/Kronos collaborations Sivunittinni (2015, composed by T. Tagaq for Kronos Fifty for the Future, arranged by Jacob Garchik) and Colonizer (arranged by T. Tagaq, performed with Kronos Quartet on her album Tongues, 2022).

Content Reflection
Tagaq innovates upon traditional and experimental vocal forms, combining otherworldly growls, breathy moans, and ghostly chants with elements of spoken word, punk, industrial, metal and electronica. Her performances are visceral and elemental and as Tagaq has said from the stage “you don’t have seat belts, but buckle them in your head.”

*Ticket proceeds from Brown Arts Institute programming support artistic productions created by the various artistic communities on Brown’s campus and in Providence.

This event is part of the Brown Arts IGNITE Series.
