Experience Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 masterpiece The Passion of Joan of Arc with a one-of-a-kind improv score from the Shadow Ensemble, a chamber group dedicated to live improv scoring to silent films, founded by composer Ryan Cockerham at Northwest Arkansas Community College in 2017. This silent film, which boasted the most expensive set made to that date, stars Maria Falconetti as Joan of Arc, depicting the historical figure’s 1431 trial for heresy.
This Trillium Salon Series, the 2nd collaboration with The Shadow Ensemble, aims to explore the senses through a stunning reimagining Passion of Joan of Arc as it’s never been experienced before. The event will take place on Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at Artist’s Laboratory Theatre, located at 1030 S. College Ave., Fayetteville.
In addition to the exploration of sound and moving image, they have local provisions on hand, allowing salon-goers to engage with the community and connect through art, music, food & drink. Admission to this event is pay-what-you-can, with a suggested donation of $10. This venue has a ramp, and is accessible to attendees with disabilities.
