Ipsa Dixit at EMPAC

Date: Fri, Dec 9 - 9, 2016
Time: 8:00 PM
Where: EMPAC, Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute, 110 8th Street Troy, NY 12180

Ipsa Dixit is an evening-length work of theatrical chamber music by American composer Kate Soper. Exploring the intersection of music, language, and meaning, the piece blends elements of monodrama, Greek theater, and screwball comedy to skewer the treachery of language and the questionable authenticity of artistic expression. Each of the piece's six movements draw on texts by thinkers such as Aristotle, Plato, Freud, Wittgenstein, Jenny Holtzer, and Lydia Davis, delivering ideas from the linguistic disciplines of poetics, rhetoric, and metaphysics through extended vocal techniques and blistering ensemble virtuosity. Developed in pieces since 2010, Soper's EMPAC residency will culminate in the first performance of the work's entire cycle, featuring percussionist Ian Antonio, violinist Josh Modney, and flutist Erin Lesser.
