Kaki King

^^

When: Friday 10th August
Where: Factory Theatre

Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body" is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. "More than anything the process of creating this music has proven to me once again that the guitar really does the speaking, and I'm just the interpreter." - Kaki King "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body" was produced in collaboration with Glowing Pictures (best known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio).
