A symphonic story about the way people listen to each other and to the world around them, HOLD MUSIC takes us on a journey into the musical world of speech and memory, language and thought. Drawing upon live music, video, movement, and text to tell intertwined and parallel stories, the performance begins with the question: Why and how does music make us feel? How do things get stuck in our head?

 

“Videt and her company reimagine the elements of the avant garde in their own, exciting terms–and with flashes of humor.” -TheaterOnline

About the Company: PEGLEG PRODUCTIONS

PEGLEG PRODUCTIONS is a nascent theater company based in New York City and helmed by recent alumni of Harvard University. We are a company of collaborators, and the thread that connects all of our projects is our emphasis on developing work that features the skills and talents of our ever-changing line-up of technicians/actors/designers and that emphasizes the social issues we find most compelling in the modern world. Our work is interdisciplinary, relying on movement/dance as much as text to create dramatic effect and mood. It is explicitly self-conscious, commenting upon the conceits of live performance even as we endeavor to create an experience that could only occur at a live event. It is critical, taking as its basis the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of social life in the 21st century and portraying them in ways that excite, problematize, and provoke.
