Formal Inquiry: The Sonata Undressed


My artistic interests are pretty limited (visual arts) so it's thrilling for me to know that there are still people out there thinking, "There just aren't enough performances these days that combine poetry, chamber visual and visual art." and then they do something to change that. The Heroes come to the rescue again with their presentation of Formal Inquiry: The Sonata Undressed.

"One of the most dominant composing structures in music for more than two centuries, the sonata was at one point more than a kind of music – it was, arguably, almost a way of thinking.

Inspired by the form, a small group of musicians, poets and visual artists have come together to learn more about sonatas and discover how they can work in music, poetry and visual art." via

They've been practicing for hours and will be presenting the fruits of the their labor this weekend for 3 performances at Velocity Dance Center. Shows are nightly (Fri, Sat, Sun) at 7:30pm. Tickets are $8 (advance, $10/door).

Participating artists include Alexis Vergalla, Amy Schrader, Angela Scott, Carrie A. Purcell, Greg Plumis, Hanah Mareckova, Kate Protage, Justin Rigamonti, Rochelle Nguyen and Teresa Morani.
