EVENT INFORMATION

TRIPTYCH (EYES OF ONE ON ANOTHER)

WEDNESDAY 26 JUNE 20.00, SNH

Bryce Dessner, composer and guitarist for The National, was only 14 years old when a wave of protests against a retrospective exhibition of Robert Mapplethorpe photographs swept his hometown of Cincinnati. Of course it wasn't his glossy photographs of flowers that caused controversy but the nude pictures and the BDSM references. The outbreak of violence around the Contemporary Arts Center left a deep impression on Dessner, who has now returned to this incident, creating a new multimedia show dedicated to the creative universe of Robert Mapplethorpe, a key influence in contemporary photography. The work is dedicated to the way in which Mapplethorpe's work shocks, seduces, provokes, and sparks debate. Triptych premiered on March 5 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles with the LA Philharmonic New Music Group.

Composed by Bryce Dessner, Libretto by Korde Arrington Tuttle, featuring words by Essex Hemphill & Patti Smith, Directed by Kaneza Schaal, Featuring Roomful of Teeth and Ergon Ensemble, Music Direction and Conducting by Brad Wells, Set & Costume Design by Carlos Soto, Lighting Design by Yuki Nakase, Video by Simon Harding, Produced by ArKtype Thomas O. Kriegsmann in Cooperation with The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.
