"RETURN FLIGHT"

The long awaited return of PNME's signature Return Flight production! Based on the incredible "Musica Ricercata" of György Ligeti, Return Flight is a spiral forward and backward blending music, poetry, clapping, and scrabble into an inescapable and inevitable corkscrew. Works by composers Thierry de Mey and Amy Williams, as well as poets William Langford and Danny Spiegel are only a few of the delights along the way.
