Kaki King (USA)
The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body
“I’ve never seen anything like it… a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision by a guitarist already renowned for her innovation… I repeat: Do not miss this.” – Boston Globe.
“There are some guitar players that are good, and there are some guitar players that are really……… good. And then there’s Kaki King.” – Dave Grohl.
Provocative and moving, surprising and beautiful, The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body is Kaki King at her visionary best: deconstructing and redefining the role of solo instrumental artist through virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. This ground-breaking new multi-media performance uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins, are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production.
“More than anything the process of creating this music has proven to me once again that the guitar really does the speaking, and I’m just the interpreter.” – Kaki King
The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body was produced in collaboration with Glowing Pictures (best known for their work with such artists as Animal Collective, David Byrne & Brian Eno, Beastie Boys, and TV On The Radio). An album of the same name, featuring the soundtrack from the show, was released on March 3, 2015.
The Neck Is A Bridge To The Body debuted at Brooklyn’s acclaimed BRIC Theater in New York City in 2014, and is touring extensively worldwide.
