Performance Dates

Venue

Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

The Calder Quartet joins choreographer and Deaf advocate Antoine Hunter for an imaginative and joyful collaboration of chamber music and dance. Developed by the Quartet and Hunter, and featuring dancers Hunter and Zahna Simon, The Mind's Ear draws inspiration from the collaboration between Merce Cunningham and John Cage, as well as the musical interchange between Julius Eastman and Cage. The program also offers a poignant insight into Beethoven's Quartet No. 13, written when his deafness had a profound impact on his life and work.
