The International Street Cannibals
The International Street Cannibals is a collective of acclaimed and untamed instrumentalists, singers, composers, videographers, audio technicians, dancers, puppeteers and visual artists, directed by Dan Barrett with Assistant-Director Chala Yancy, Dance Director Megan Sipe, Technical Director Tyler Learned. In the spirit of Montaigne’s 1580 essay, “Of Cannibals,” in which the French philosopher derides the status distinctions and disingenuous mores of the contemporary society of his time, the ensemble presents a mix of fresh compositions and the more arresting in classical music, showcasing diverse modalities while challenging assumptions about the concert space. Since its inception in 2005, ISC has made as its performance homes the main dance space of St Mark's in-the-Bowery, The Outreach Festival (Schwaz, Austria), The Player's Theatre (NYC), and has performed at Le Poisson Rouge, St. Mark’s in-the-Bowery, the Austrian Cultural Forum, HOWL! Festival (New York), and the legendary boxing ring, Gleason’s – home of 127 world champions – in which ISC holds its annual STRIKE! concert series. ISC can be heard on two CDs released in 2010-11 by Composers Concordance Records: Ballets & Solos (Music by Dan Cooper, Part Hardish, Otto Luening, Joseph Pehrson and Gene Pritsker), and The International Street Cannibals Present The Music of Gene Pritsker. Composers Concordance Records/Naxos will release Non Western Omelette (Music by Luciano Berio, Dan Cooper, Paul Hindemith, Guillaume de Machaut/Barrett, Dary John Mizelle, Arvo Pärt, Gene Pritsker, James "Nyoraku" Schlefer, and Tyrolian folk tunes) in April 2013, and Beethoven: Works for Pianoforte and Violoncello (Twelve Variations on a Theme from Judas Maccabaeus; Grand Sonata, Opus 64, in D major; Sonata, Opus 17, in F major) performed by Dan Barrett on cello and Joshua Pierce on piano, in May 2013.
