About This Performance
A Thousand Thoughts – A live documentary with the Kronos Quartet, written and directed by Sam Green and Joe Bini.
Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini team up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for a wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with prominent artists. Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery on screen to craft a vital record and exploration of late 20th- and early 21st-century music. As Green tells the story of the quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, Aleksandra Vrebalov, and many others.
Major support for this concert has been provided by Wavelength Productions and Anthony B. Creamer III
