Meredith Monk

Meredith Monk’s residency at Dartington in 2008 was one of the products of the short-lived Transatlantic Arts Consortium, a partnership between the Dartington arts funding vehicle, Dartington Plus in the UK, and CalArts and Idyllwild Arts in the US. The new work devised at Dartington was Songs of Ascension a collaboration between Monk and the visual artist Ann Hamilton, which also involved the CalArts Choir and the Elysian String Quartet. It was premiered in the US in November 2008.
