THE LIZ : BOOK OF BIRDS
"Mein absolutes Konzert des Jahres." -Philipp Rhensius, TAZ
In Book of Birds, The Liz tells the story of transformations and multiples: a maiden Sphinx, Anubis the dog of death, and Oedipus, as narrated by Kathy Acker.
Drawing from traditional Greek myth, as well as Cocteau’s ‘Infernal Machine’ and Acker’s ‘Blood and Guts in High School’, The Liz translates the riddles of the Sphinx into an engine for the musical re-production of resistance, and of subliminal and mythic resonance.
