Fairytale meets noir meets classical music, LAMINARIA tells the story of an underwater shadow ghost emerging from a kelp forest. Laminaria (the Latin word for kelp) is used medicinally to induce labor in women and serves as a metaphor for rebirth, transformation and loss. The suite was written by Concetta Abbate, violinist/singer/composer for a 10 piece chamber orchestra- Strings, woodwinds, piano, brass and percussion and presented NYC at the Dimenna Center and El Museo del Barrio in NYC.

This event will be performed in collaboration with dancers from the Wendy Osserman Dance Company.
