Helga Davis Brings Music to Nick Cave’s “Until” @ MASS MoCA [Berkshire on Stage]

October 26th, 2016, 1:30 pm by Greg

Helga Davis, “a powerful vocalist with an almost operatic range and all the bruised sensuality of Jeanne Lee” (Wire Magazine), responds to Nick Cave’s exhibit “Until” with an intimate performance – solo with her loop station – inside the exhibition. Experience the merging of music and art at 8pm on Friday (October 28) at MASS MoCA in North Adams.

Actor, vocalist and performance artist hailing from New York City, Davis is known for collaborating with composers and choreographers to build original works. She has appeared in pieces by Ann Hamilton, Missy Mazzolli, Paola Prestini, Peter Greenaway, and Shara Worden. Davis is currently starring in Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s Einstein on the Beach, a four-piece opera composed by Glass and directed by Wilson. She has previously appeared at MASS MoCA in The Love Show (2011) and Oceanic Verses (2012).
