This is an unforgettable show, bringing together the work of these five unique filmmakers with Thollem's Prophet and a microphone: jumping from an electric diving board into reality and imagination, landing squarely in the midst of the time of our lives at the center of a world on the edge.
'Technicolor Grey Zone' is a multimedia experience pairing Thollem's live musical scoring to films. This year he's focusing on the films and video art of Martha Colburn (U.S./Holland), Tuia Cherici (Italy/France), Allison Leigh Holt, and Germaul Barnesand ACVilla (U.S.). Thollem has worked with each of these three filmmakers on various projects throughout North America and Europe including Maxxi Museum in Rome, Philadelphia Museum of Art, New Museum, SF MOMA, Crowley Theater, San Diego Institute of Art, Crystal Bridges, Toledo Museum of Art, Trinosophes, Pioneer Works, Northwest Film Forum, Sundance, Rotterdam Film Festival and more.
Thollem is a pianist, keyboardist, composer, improviser, singer-songwriter, activist, author and teacher. He's spent his life skirting and erasing the edges of boundaries musically, culturally, geographically. His work is ever changing, evolving and responding to the times and his experiences, both as a soloist and in collaboration with hundreds of artists across idioms and disciplines. Thollem's known internationally as an acoustic piano player in the free jazz and post-classical worlds, as the lead vocalist for the Italian agit-punk band Tsigoti and more recently as an electronic keyboardist through a multitude of projects including Who Are U.S. 2016 with the filmmaker ACVilla.
