The Taos Center for the Arts presents the American premiere of “17 - when emptiness turns inside out” by Canadian artist Morag Northey, for a single performance at 7:00pm on Friday, November 30, 2018 at the Taos Community Auditorium.
"17" is a 50-minute theatrical, multi-genre fusion of cello, story, and song. At its heart, it takes its audience on one whale of a ride through Northey's profound experiences as an artist, woman, mother, and indomitable spirit. She will be accompanied onstage by award-winning author and playwright Eugene Stickland. Throughout this groundbreaking work, we get a glimpse into the magnitude and depth of this prolific artist. One thing is certain: the honesty of Morag’s story and the force of her vocal and virtuosic cello performance has profoundly touched and moved audiences. It’s a night in the theatre quite unlike anything you have ever seen – or heard – before. During 17's final refrain, having traversed a raw and challenging landscape, the audience is brought to a place of universal understanding, that in our troubles, none of us are ever alone.
