GUEST: PAMELA Z / ARTIST, COMPOSER & PERFORMER
Composer/Performer Pamela Z and media artist Chrtistina McPhee bring their site-specific multimedia performance Carbon Song Cycle to The Exploratorium, co-presented by San Francisco Cinematheque and Shapeshifters Cinema.
The performance is scored for a chamber ensemble of voice & electronics, bassoon, voila, cello and percussion, with immersive, multi-screen video projections.
Peter Robinson talks about the book “Saving Freud” which recounts the dramatic rescue of Sigmund Freud as the Nazis marched into Vienna. This fine biography is an absorbing chronicle of Freud’s harrowing escape and arrival in London. This thrilling edge-of-your-seat gripping of a truly dramatic story reads like a thriller and comes out in paperback this month.
