Ferst Center for the Arts
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Her latest work, "The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body" is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, imagination, and boundless humanity. This groundbreaking performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar in a creation myth unlike any other, where visions of genesis and death are cast onto an Ovation acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production. Tickets at arts.gatech.edu and 404.894.9600.
