Mother’s Blood A/V, Penelope Trappes

Penelope Trappes’ otherworldly 2021 album Penelope Three is transfigured into ethereal new form for this live show. Shorn of lyrics and percussion, these re-workings are constructed solely from drones and Trappes’s wordless vocals, building into meditative, womblike ambient pieces with devastating emotional heft. Accompanying this performance of all ten songs from Penelope Three is Mother’s Blood, a surreal film on the theme of motherhood by Trappes and filmmaker Agnes Haus. [TICKETS]
