"David T. Little is quickly gaining a reputation as an opera composer of substantial promise, but Haunt of Last Nightfall, a percussion work just over half an hour long, shows that his dramatic instincts extend well beyond the theatrical stage. Billed as a 'ghost play' inspired by a 1981 massacre in El Salvador, the music moves from rusticity through violence, despair and outrage in this eloquent account by Chicago's versatile, resourceful Third Coast Percussion. -- Steve Smith, The New York Times

What if you could see music? In this powerhouse collaboration, Cathie Boyd and her Glasgow-based art house Cryptic join forces with Third Coast Percussion. Their performance of tender, powerful, and haunting music from David T. Little and Peter Garland, along with the world premiere of Gavin Bryars’s The Other Side of the River, is an immersive experience in which music, lighting, films, and staging come together to “ravish the senses.”

60 minutes, no intermission.
