What is BLACK INSCRIPTION??
It’s an all-star rock band under the sea.
Come and dive in!
Cotuit Center for the Arts is proud to present the Cape Cod premiere of a stunning new work that received its world premiere at New York’s Prototype Festival in January 2018.
A free diver descends into the depths of the ocean, never to resurface. As her terrestrial ties dissolve, she embarks upon an Odyssean journey. Transported by the sea’s currents, she encounters a mystifying underworld with billions of bioluminescent creatures, endlessly inventive structures of coral, gyres of human detritus, and abandoned nets still fishing for no one – sights both awe-inspiring and devastating.
Black Inscription, written by Carla Kihlstedt, Matthias Bossi, Jeremy Flower, and directed by Kihlstedt and Mark DeChiazza, is an immersive multimedia song cycle by a team of veteran creators, drawing on the most powerful aspects of rock, contemporary classical, and pop music. Through music, sound and imagery, Black Inscription plunges us into our oceans and fills us with wonder, outrage, and hope.
