The Sanctuary Project
An exciting selection of established and emerging poets and composers have been commissioned by Lunatics at Large to write works on the theme Sanctuary. This project is an exploration of Sanctuary, which we all, creative artists, performing artists and public, connect to in very personal and different ways. The creative insight gained through a collaborative process spanning over twelve months between poets, composers and performing musicians will represent a unique artistic investigation, inviting audiences to re-discover and expand their own conception of Sanctuary.
After the World Premiere Performances of The Sanctuary Project at Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall, on March 21st 2011, the project will be re-performed in actual NYC sanctuaries at Christ and Saint Stephen's Church (April 8, 8pm) and at the Synagogue for the Arts (April 10, 7pm), as well as at WMP Concert Hall (April 21, 7:30pm). In between the chamber pieces, poets will read poems that inspired the chamber works, and also poems inspired by the chamber works.
