WHEN THE WORLD’S ON FIRE

Today, as myth and fantasy spill out into the political stage, New York icon, guitarist Marc Ribot joins with National Sawdust artist-in-resident Sophia Brous to premiere a new exploration into songs of beauty, disorder and dissent for a new America, where the blurred lines between dream and waking call on a new songbook of lullabies, hymns and songs of resistance to guide us in the days ahead.

 
Created for the Direct Current Festival, The Kennedy Center, Washington, DC.
