The innovative ensemble Sō Percussion explores America’s fraught relationship with guns in this theatrically staged concert. Taking mallets to disassembled sniper rifles and assorted drums, the musicians serve as Greek chorus, commenting instrumentally on sung and spoken texts drawn from the nightmares and nostalgia of armed experiences. Obie-winning director Ain Gordon and choreographer Emily Johnson give depth to this probing work.
Museum galleries open until 7pm.
