Concert by Composer Steven Kazuo Takasugi: Sideshow

8:00pm

Location: 

Knafel Center, 10 Garden St

Presented by: Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study
Admission Free: No Tickets Required

Please join us for an evening of new music from composer Steven Kazuo Takasugi, the Rieman and Baketel Fellow for Music, Radcliffe Institute and associate, Department of Music, Harvard University.

Based on the dark sideshows of Coney Island’s amusement parks in the early part of the 20th century, "Sideshow" is a meditation on virtuosity, freak shows, entertainment, spectacle, business, and the sacrifices one makes to survive in the world. A cycle of six aphorisms by the Viennese satirist Karl Kraus (1874–1936) is embedded as a subtext running through the work.
