Scored for 12 strings, darker is more of an object than a piece of music, weaving together intricate solo lines into a delicate and subtly emotional fabric. "My piece, like life, expends a lot of effort to go a very short distance," says Lang. "From beautiful to a little less beautiful, from a little light to something a little darker." The performance will feature hypnotic projections created live by New York based visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra. (more...)

CASA VALENTINA Kicks Off Ninth Theatrical Season at DEZART PERFORMS in Palm Springs
