We are thrilled to announce that 2016 O+ Festival Alum, and internationally acclaimed instrumentalist, Kaki King will be presenting her show MODERN YESTERDAYS. This is a preview of her show debuting days later at Lincoln Center featuring new music and choreographed projections.
The 2021 O+ Festival, October 8-10, is free to the public and will provide artists and musicians with access to healthcare through the festival clinic in exchange for their work. Your support keeps the festival going and helps the organization as we innovate around year-round models for the exchange of the art of medicine for the medicine of art.
In MODERN YESTERDAY’s, Kaki King continues to refine her now signature instrument-centered projection mapping performance, using audiovisual technical wizardry, carefully choreographed guitar and drum playing, as well as colorful visual curation, to send us on a journey –arriving at the emotional place we yearn to visit.
“Percussive, foreboding and futuristic, it’s a brilliant display of how King-who could put anyone to shame in a contest of pure technical acoustic skill if need be -is skilled enough to floor you with even the simplest figures.”-Jackson Maxwell, Guitar World
“for two decades –taps and slaps strings to make music as ornate as a healing crystal.”-The New York Times
“King’s evocative performance was a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision by a guitarist already renowned for her innovation.”-Boston Globe
“bare, powerful, and propulsive.”-KUTX Austin
“If there’s one thing you can predict about the iconoclastic avant-guitarist Kaki King, it’s that the only thing you expect her to do next is that she’ll do the unexpected, every time.”-Digital Trends
