Take Five: Rinde Eckert, Education of an Eclectic

Rinde Eckert writes, composes, performs and directs evocative and haunting performance pieces and plays that push the boundaries of what a "play," a "dance piece," an "opera" or a "musical" might be. He grapples with complex issues in works that feature a smart, slightly cock-eyed Everyman who begins his journey with a pure sense of mission and descends into the maelstrom. Becoming Unusual is a solo concert of song, dramatic monologues, lecture and video from his anthology of theatrical loners. The Clarice Smith Center has co-commissioned two of Eckert's works: HORIZON (2005), which toured throughout the country and had a successful Off-Broadway run in 2007; and SLIDE (2010), created in collaboration with eighth blackbird and composer/guitarist Steve Mackey. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 8, 2011
