Shelley Hirsch: A Vocal Performance
in Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take
When asked if there was anyone he would like to have perform in his exhibition, artist Jim Hodges suggested his friend the vocalist Shelley Hirsch. It is our great pleasure to bring Hirsch, who performed at the ICA in 2009, back to our stage. For one performance, she will present States, an evocative sonic travelogue inspired by a Hodges exhibition she saw at the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia. For the other, she will present one of her storied improvisations, which typically bring together extended vocal techniques, actual and hypothetical languages, and rich electronic effects. The performances will last 20 minutes each.
