Tonight in New York, Voice / Media / Theatre is Qubit’s season finale party, proposing the powerful combination of voice, instruments, electronic sound, and video that explores dramaturgy mediated and mediatized.
Featuring soprano soloist Charlotte Mundy and her fellow performers in the TAK ensemble, we invite audience members to listen, interact, and enjoy cocktails inspired by the program. Qubit will also be joined for the evening by Alexandra Albert, a celebrated fixture of the acclaimed Toronto restaurant and bar scene.
With work by Jagoda Szmytka, Marina Kifferstein, David Bird, and Kaija Saariaho, the event is also a preview of major new works by Alec Hall, FLUFFER KING, and Aaron Einbond, Hidden in Plain Sight. Each are being developed for a larger Qubit and TAK collaboration, “Music//Theater//Now” in early 2018.
