It's almost impossible to pin her down. Singer, dancer, filmmaker, composer, choreographer, Meredith Monk's talents include about as many artistic fields as you can imagine. Celebrates a multidisciplinary career that draws from a wellspring of Zen Buddhist beliefs and spans a period of 40 years. Based on a wealth of materials including personal archives, film clips of performances, and interviews with her collaborators, as well as conversations with the artist herself.
Special features include: live performance of Dolmen music; Tricycle magazine interview with Babeth M. Vanloo (PDF); filmmaker biography.
Another well done documentary, this time by the subjects neighbor and friend. The "mulit-artist" Meredith Monk seems to have been everywhere from the late 1960s to present day. Her craft is amazing, very free and liberating.
If she "represents" anything it is the grace she brings to to her craft. ~Mike
