Eartha’s Guide to Everyday Living

  • 11 Sep
    First performance
    Maschinenhaus, Essen

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.
