Kronos Quartet Doc 650

A THOUSAND THOUGHTS

Guild Hall of East Hampton
Friday, June 21 | 8:00 pm | Tickets

Written and Directed by Sam Green and Joe Bini

Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini team up with Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet for a wildly creative multimedia performance piece that blends live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews with such prominent artists as Philip Glass, Tanya Tagaq, Steve Reich, Wu Man and Terry Riley.

As Green tells the multi-decade and continent-spanning story of the groundbreaking string quartet, Kronos revisits its extensive body of work, performing music by George Crumb, Aleksandra Vrebalov and many others.

Together on stage, Green and Kronos interact with the stirring cinematic imagery on screen to craft an important record and exploration of late 20th– and early 21st–century music. Transcending the typical live music and film event, this collaboration quickly becomes a meditation on music itself—the act of listening to it closely, the experience of feeling it deeply, and the power that it has to change the world.


Tickets are $65-$150 and $60-$145 for HIFF and Guild Hall members. HIFF members: purchase tickets online from Guild Hall and select ‘member price’ to receive your discount (your name will be checked against our member roster). Enjoy!
