Youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Caroline Shaw is primarily a violinist, but composes primarily for contemporary, cutting edge chorale, drawing on eclectic forms of folk vocal music. In this multimedia duet with modern dancer, Vancouver’s Vanessa Goodman, Shaw sings various vocal strains that she records and layers with a loop machine. The resulting show is a polyphonic modern vocal fugue that’s matched, in black and white with Goodman’s lithe dance harmony.
