Quiet Lightning presents Call and Response: Kim Anno and Pamela Z - Private Parlor Show (($15 adv/$15 day of show))

Quiet Lightning presents Call and Response: Kim Anno and Pamela Z

Call and Response: a specialist in any field gives a presentation—of any kind—in their area of expertise, followed by an informal Q&A and an improv response by some of the Bay Area’s finest creative musicians.

This show features painter, photographer, and film/video artist Kim Anno and her adaptation-in-progress of Dante's Purgatorio, which she is secularizing. "Dante was moving in that direction but kept to the Christianity for many reasons," Anno says. "My aim is to remove that entirely and see what there is left."

Responding to Anno's presentation is composer/performer and media artist Pamela Z! Two awe-inspiring creatives who actively bridge the worlds of art and science/tech, and two excellent chances that you will find yourself saying I haven't seen anything like that before. One night only.
