Acclaimed nationwide for eclectic programming and virtuoso performances, string quartet ETHEL visits Breckenridge for the Colorado premiere of Documerica, a multimedia performance event and a moving meditation on America’s relationship to our land, our resources and ourselves.
Inspired by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Project Documerica—a massive snapshot of America showcased in an astonishing visual trove of images from the EPA archive captured during the recession-plagued tumultuous 1970s—this piece is a musical meditation accompanied by big sky vistas, ghost towns, mountains and slices of urban environments, capturing America’s complicated relationship to its natural landscape.
Featuring new music by acclaimed composers Mary Ellen Childs, Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr., Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, and blues man James Kimo Williams, ETHEL is also paired with stunning projections by renowned artist Deborah Johnson.
