Jen Shyu: "Nine Doors" concert

January 19 1:00 am - 2:00 am

Jen Shyu is an extraordinary composer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and vocalist whose polymath talents are deftly synthesized in the ritualistic solo performance Nine Doors. At the heart of the multi-faceted narrative is a wayang kulit shadow puppeteer’s daughter from Indonesia who, in the face of tragedy and trauma, is empowered through encounters with female legends from Timorese and Korean folklore. As she voyages through time and space to meet them, they offer her guidance, strength, and solace. Astonishingly, Shyu sings songs in eight languages, dances, and plays Taiwanese moon lute, Korean gayageum, piano, Japanese biwa, and Korean soribuk drum to tell this transformative, uplifting story. Jen Shyu is a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow and a 2019 United States Artists Fellow. She is peerless.We transform Sudakoff into a nightclub, and there will be free snacks available before the concert begins. Admission is FREE for all NCF students, faculty, and staff—just bring your NCF ID!Pre-concert talk by NMNC Director Professor Steve Miles at 7:30.More info here: https://www.newmusicnewcollege.org/nine-doorsHosted by: New Music New CollegeAdditional Information can be found at: https://novoconnect.ncf.edu/event/4798670
