INK: a piece for museums

Created and performed by James & Jerome in collaboration with Shawn Duan
Directed by Rachel Chavkin and Annie Tippe

INK is an art lecture, live personal essay, and electronic music concert all in one. With stunning visuals by media designer Shawn Duan, musician-storyteller duo James Harrison Monaco and Jerome Ellis perform a lush live score as they lovingly analyze works from around the world, exploding the traditional art lecture into a unique theatrical experience—one that's at once playful, intellectual, and spiritual. Together they guide us through a meditation on calligraphy and illuminated manuscripts, on music and silence, and on Jerome's intimate relationship to the spoken and written word in this first-ever collaboration between Under the Radar and The Met.

Presented as part of The Public Theater's Under the Radar Festival 2019.
