Scheherezade Project

A Multimedia Song Cycle by HOLLANDS, PUBLIQuartet and Amy Khoshbin

Buy Tickets

The Scheherazade Project (TSP) takes its inspiration from the feminist icon Scheherazade, who uses well-known tales to suit her needs, saving her own life as well as the lives of thousands of women from a virgin-killing king in the classical Persian story One Thousand and One Nights. Reimagined through a contemporary western "lens", (TSP) conceives a disillusioned dictator wooed by media stories, slowly immersed into the realm of the screen where "reality" and "fiction" become indiscernible.  Indie-rock duo HOLLANDS and string quartet PUBLIQuartet integrate rock ‘n’ roll and classical music, merging electronic and acoustic genres via original song and improvisations that pay homage to Rimsky- Korsakov's symphonic poem Scheherazade. Set alongside live storytelling and multi-channel video projections by Iranian-American artist Amy Khoshbin, (TSP) was commissioned by a 2015 Mpower Grant awarded by the Sphinx Organization and Music Assistance Fund.

Curated and Co-presented by The New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and National Sawdust as part of the New York Philharmonic's Biennial Celebration.
