  Meredith Monk has spent more than five decades exploring the capacity of that essential instrument: the human voice. Monk and the four women of her peerless vocal ensemble present a new work, continuing their investigation of the interconnected, ineffable relationship between humans and the natural world.

Pairing voice with movement, instrumentation, and a site-specific video installation, Cellular Songs, contemplates the fundamental unit of life and its relation to the universe. Drawing inspiration from biological processes - layering, division, replication, and mutation - Monk looks to underlying systems in nature that can serve as a prototype for human behavior in our tumultuous world.
