Wet Ink is thrilled to join Kate Soper for her debut on the Miller Theatre at Columbia University Composer Portraits series in this fully staged production of IPSA DIXIT, directed by Ashley Tata. Composer/performer/writer Kate Soper's IPSA DIXIT is a genre-defying work of chamber music theatre that explores music, language, and meaning through blistering ensemble virtuosity and extended vocal technique. Developed over six years of collaboration with the Wet Ink Ensemble, IPSA DIXIT uses elements of monodrama, Greek tragedy, and performance art to skewer the treachery of language and the questionable authenticity of artistic expression. IPSA DIXIT was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in music.
This concert will also celebrate the CD release of IPSA DIXIT on New World Records (the album will be available on October 5, 2018), featuring liner notes by Steve Smith.
