A day with iconic composer, singer, director/choreographer and filmmaker, Meredith Monk. Following afternoon screenings, the evening discussion featured Meredith Monk, Performing Arts Journal editor Bonnie Marranca, and Frank Hentschker. Screenings included 16 Millimeter Earrings (1966), Book of Days (1988), Ellis Island (1981), Turtle Dreams (1983), Paris (1982), and several of Monk’s short silent films (1966-1994).
Considered one of the most unique and influential artists of our time, Meredith Monk has been a pioneer of interdisciplinary work for over 50 years. Her award-winning films, Ellis Island and Book of Days, have screened world-wide and on PBS, and her music has been used by filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard, Terrence Malick, David Byrne and the Coen brothers, among others. Monk has made more than a dozen recordings on the ECM label, including the 2008 Grammy-nominated Impermanence. In conjunction with her 50th season of performing and creating work, she was named the 2014-15 Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall. Recent honors include the 2017 Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize and a 2015 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama. Celebrated internationally, Ms. Monk’s work has been presented at major venues throughout the world.
