Hip Hop poetry trio The Mighty Third Rail and innovative classical ensemble PUBLIQuartet join forces in a mash up of strings, verses and beat-boxing where the worlds of hip hop and classical music collide. In a re-imagining of Ligeti’s Quartet No. 1 “Metamorphoses Nocturnes” as the score for a modern day telling of the Garden of Eden, Eve has gone missing and within the course of one night, Adam’s entire contemporary existence is evolving before his eyes. The Mighty Third Rail takes on the role of civilization, PUBLIQuartet represents that of nature, and violinist Curtis Stewart serves as the bridge to both worlds in this journey that questions the nature of change, survival, and how the things we build to inhabit this dynamic world can co-exist with the natural without destroying it.
