Where We Lost Our Shadows

Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall

57th St. and 7th Ave., NYC

Event Details

ACO presents the NY premiere of Du Yun and Khaled Jarrar’Where We Lost Our Shadows, a new multidisciplinary work for orchestra, film, and vocalists. Written in response to film captured by Ramallah-based Palestinian visual artist Jarrar, which documents the refugee crisis in Europe, the piece will be performed by ACO with Pakistani Qawwali singer Ali Sethi, singer Helga Davis, and percussionist Shayna Dunkelman alongside Jarrar’s visuals. The concert also includes Gloria Coates‘ Symphony No. 1, “Music on Open Strings,” from 1973, and Morton Feldman‘s 1980 work Turfan Fragments, inspired by a series of fragments of knotted carpets from the third and sixth centuries which were discovered in the Silk Road region.
