Presented in conjunction with the Weisman Art Museum’s exhibition The Talking Cure, “Unspoken” is an experimental, interdisciplinary event that brings together scholar Leslie Morris, renowned countertenor Ryland Angel, and visual artist Rebecca Krinke. Attendees will hear excerpts of Morris’ hybrid memoir “She Did Not Speak,” which reflects on the elusive links between her unexplained coma and her family’s buried Holocaust history, hear the world-premiere performance of Angel’s libretto composition inspired by Morris’ work , and be invited to contribute to Krinke’s participatory art installation, “What Needs to Be Said?”.
Cosponsored by the Center for Jewish Studies, the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and the Departments of Art History and German, Scandinavian and Dutch.
