Jennifer Koh and Davóne Tines are set to reunite for the New York Premiere of “Everything Rises” at BAM Next Wave 2022.
The showcase, which kicks off on Oct. 12 and runs through the 15th, will feature the two artists telling their stories, artistic journeys, and family histories as they “reclaim the narratives about who they are and how they got to where they are today.” The show will be directed by Alexander Gedeon and features music by Ken Ueno.
Koh and Tines previously appeared together in the virtual project “Strange Fruit,” which was shown at Carnegie Hall in 2021.
The work was co-commissioned by ARCO Collaborative and the UC Santa Barbara Arts & Lectures. It has its world premiere this April in Los Angeles at UC Santa Barbara’s Campbell Hall and UCLA’s Royce Hall.
“Violin and voice speak with an eloquence and power worth knowing about. … Koh and Tines’ stories have made them what they are, but their art needs to be—and is—great enough to tell us who they are,” said the Los Angeles Times review of the April premiere.
