Kaki King and Tamar Eisenman’s SEI

April 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Kaki King SEI

Event Information

The Rolling Stone has called Kaki King “a genre unto herself”. With a star-studded career that has spanned two decades, Kaki King continues to live at the forefront of guitarists and performance-makers.

In Kaki King and Tamar Eisenman’s continuous quest to explore the outer bounds of what is possible for the guitar, SEI is a new full-length performance piece where guitar movement takes over the entire stage. In SEI (which means “six” in Italian), guitarists become dancers, coordinating their whole bodies to perform the rigors of both choreography and composition. Multiple guitars on stands are spaced out strategically, in a design allowing for music and movement to be created between them. In SEI, the relationship between the players is revealed musically and physically, a progression of distance and space—like the progression between the six individual strings of the guitar.

Calling Kaki King a guitarist does her a disservice. The post-rock composer and musician is a consummate performance artist who does things to her instrument most self-identified guitarists could never even imagine, much less replicate.” – Washington City Paper
