Dorian Wood + String Quartet : A Dios
October 27, 2016 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Of us, repeatedly staring down into the precipice of fleeting consciousness; of milk and lust; of the breadth of celebrity death…an evening of music by Dorian Wood and conductor/arranger Danny Graziani, with art direction by Eduardo Alvarez (director of Wood’s video “O”).
“A fearless artist and performer whose voice inhabits a room like a choir of ghosts” (LA Weekly), Dorian Wood seeks to glorify both the sanctity and irreverence of intimacy. Through the use of his corpulent body and distinct vocalization, Wood revels in challenging the artist-audience separation, using subject matter informed by his own position in society as a queer man of color and an autodidact without a formal college education nor a strong alliance to any particular community. His work has been showcased in institutions such as LACMA (Los Angeles), The Stone (NYC), Kulturhuset (Stockholm), and Hebbel am Ufer (Berlin). As a musician, he has released over a dozen recordings. His two most recent back-to-back albums, Rattle Rattle and Down, The Dirty Roof, showcase a series of doomsday-themed songs that incorporate over 60 musicians. He is currently working on a new album, XALÁ, set for release in 2017. Tickets: $15 in advance; $20 at the door. Purchase advance tickets here!
