Steven Takasugi's "Sideshow"
Based on the dark sideshows of Coney Islands amusement parks in the early part of the 20th century, "Sideshow" is a meditation on the virtuosity, freak shows, entertainment, spectacle, business, and the sacrifices one makes to survive in the world. A cycle of aphorisms by the Viennese satirist Karl Kraus runs as a subtext through the work.
The 2021 Twin Cities New Music Festival presents "Sideshow" by Steven Takasugi, under the direction of Perry So.
