The experimental artist will score the 1986 book Don Quixote, Which Was A Dream.
NTGent will host the performance of Don Quixote, Which Was A Dream, which "tells the story of a woman who, after an abortion, choses to pull back from society." Dealing with themes of gender and nuclear disarmament, it's been translated into a stage production called To Name Herstory that tries to "articulate subjectivity." It premieres on January 27th, with more shows scheduled for the following weeks.
