The Yellow Wallpaper

When: Fri., March 29, 7 p.m. 2019

Contemporary percussionist Nikki Joshi presents a night of avant-garde theatre music, featuring "The Yellow Wallpaper," a brand new commission for theatrical percussion by composer and faculty at the Eastman School of Music, Matt Curlee. Based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s 1892 feminist short story of the same name, this innovative new piece includes elements such as dramatic staging, storytelling, and choreography. With Gilman's gothic text at the forefront, this work explores the concept of societal attitudes towards women's mental health.
