Eartha’s Guide to Everyday Living pays homage to the superheroine Catwoman played by the singer, dancer and performer Eartha Kitt. In American tv series from the 1960s her Catwoman represented a female counterpart to Batman. The composerperformer trio N.E.W., previously known as Les Femmes Savantes, are joined by a series of guests to translate the cartoon-like aesthetic of two tv episodes contrasting with their own abstract sounds into a powerful spatial and sonic performance that combines grooves, light and video projections.
Artist talk after the performance.
