The classic silent horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari comes to new life accompanied by the live, original music of jazz genius Chris Washburne and his ensemble, Rags and Roots. Drawing on melodies from 1921, the year the film was made, the score features a live tap dancer and a septet of top jazz artists accompanying a newly remastered print of the film.
$5 tickets for Bard undergraduate students are made possible by the Passloff Pass.
Midwest Record on Chris Washburne Rags & Roots:
“The bone man blows your mind as he blows your ears open by surrounding himself with a killer array of modern jazzbos who all pull in the same direction. Making classic rags modern and interspersing them with materiality this invites you to take a wild ride.”
