Live Scoring the Silents with the Shadow Ensemble, Sat. March 3

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 event, which marks our 2nd collaboration with Artist's Laboratory Theatre and The Shadow Ensemble, will explore the senses through a stunning reimagining of The Passion of Joan of Arc as it's never been experienced before. In addition to the exploration of sound and moving image, we’ll have local provisions on hand, allowing salon-goers to engage with the community and connect through art, music, food & drink.

The screening starts at 7 p.m. and will be held at Artist's Laboratory Theatre in Fayetteville.
