With his 2015 WaveMaker Grant, Michael Zell will present a series of public performances of “Dressur” (1977), a musical work by German-Argentine composer Mauricio Kagel (1931-2008), in which 3 players perform a rigorously detailed and theatrically-driven 30-minute piece of percussion music. The performances take place within an art gallery setting, with multiple performances over a three-day period. The structure of the performance within the venue allows for flexibility so that those who choose to observe are free to move about the performance area as it is taking place, and would be welcome to observe some, all, or none of the performance at their own discretion. The project allows for further interaction between audience and performers immediately following performances, providing the opportunity for audience members to directly interact with the performers and experience the set design up-close.
