Artistic & General Director
Delirious. Manic. Damned. A double bill with a meticulous murderer and a self-condemned artist. Stewart Copeland, drummer/founder of the rock band The Police, and Michael Gordon, Bang on a Can co-founder, take these stories to the edge of rock, jazz, and modernism.

Ernest Bloch's lavish and highly dramatic 1906 score creates the perfect tone for this bone-chilling thriller. Learn more about our Coincidence, "Ambition or Obsession?", here!
