Together, Bang on a Can co-artistic directors Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe created Road Trip, an evening-length work for the Bang on a Can All-Stars, directed by Michael Counts with rock show lighting and projections designed by CandyStations. The piece is about complicated journeys and people who make them. Physical journeys, geographical journeys, emotional journeys, spiritual journeys.
This program is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
