Opening Night | U.S. Premiere
Q&A with Meredith Monk and cast member Lanny Harrison!
In her 50th year of creating work that combines voice, movement, and image, Meredith Monk revisits her iconic piece Education of a Girlchild for this evocative documentary centering on the 1993 Joyce Theater reunion of that production’s brilliant cast. Girlchild Diary offers a unique look at Monk’s unconventional creative process, interweaving music, photographs, interviews, and performance footage to illuminate a crossover artist still radical after all these years.
