After Hours, An Evening at the Lamb's Club
An Evening at the Lambs Club references the history of the site as a place of performance. The program resonates with cabaret influences, featuring three performers who are classically-trained musicians and vocalists in jazz and opera: Joseph Keckler, Helga Davis, and Michael Hanf. These artists cross arts, music and other cultural institution platforms.
Listen to the live radio streamcast at 10pm EST New York time.
Helga Davis is presently starring in the 25th anniversary production Einstein on the Beach by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass. In last season's Next Wave Festival, Davis' second appearance was in Elsewhere, a new multi-media opera featuring cellist Maya Beiser with music by Missy Mazzoli. In December 2012, she performed at the Park Avenue Armory in Ann Hamilton's The Event of a Thread with music by David Lang, and in a new opera by Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Andrew Ondrejcak, You Us We All.
Joseph Keckler is a singer, musician, and interdisciplinary artist. Keckler's live performances have been seen at I am an Opera, was commissioned by Dixon Place. He has received residencies from MacDowell and Yaddo, as well as a Franklin Furnace Grant and a Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Work from New York Foundation for the Arts. The Village Voice recently named him "Best Downtown Performance Artist, 2013."
Michael Hanf is a performer, composer, engineer and occasional actor currently based in Brooklyn. If you ever get the chance to hear Hanf play his vibraphone in an intimate, solo setting, you'll notice there's something more going on than just the cool, resounding harmonies of the thick, metal keys on his instrument. Along with the light squeak of his pedal, methodically dampening the keys that would otherwise vibrate for minutes, there's an audible sound from his mouth. Even in a wildly energetic free-improvisation, he's singing what he's playing, his whole body and mind fully immersed in his creation.
