Wexner Center for the Arts
2/16-2/16/2014
Icelandic composer and performer Johann Johannsson is a cofounder of the Reykjavik-based Kitchen Motors-an influential arts collective whose intersection of smart indie sounds and contemporary chamber music has inspired Sigur Ros and Bjork, among others. Johannsson's atmospheric soundscapes have been enlisted by a series of filmmakers, including Bill Morrison, and choreographers, such as Erna ”marsdottir, to establish mood and propel their productions for stage and screen, and he continues to create scores for his own ensembles and like-minded collaborators, such as American Contemporary Music Ensemble. The ensemble, who have worked with bands like Grizzly Bear and Low, is a mainstay at Le Poisson Rouge, the NYC club that anchors the indie/classical crossover scene stateside. Ideal partners, Johannsson and American Contemporary Music Ensemble will perform selections from the composer's elegantly haunting and contemplative postclassical work in our acoustically superb and intimate Performance Space.

A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog.
