Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe (“Anthracite Fields,” 2015) with Maya Beiser, Melody Giron and Lavena Johanson, will honor the essential labor of spinning thread. “Spinning” celebrates the work once performed by hand by women. Music has long been a vital part of the craft — both as a propelling force and as a distraction. To pay homage to the human dignity of this “women’s work,” Wolfe and Beiser create a sonic universe for three cellos and voice featuring multimedia projections imagined by the innovative artist Laurie Olinder to illuminate and pay homage to the craft.
