Charlie Chaplin The Kid with live score by Marc Ribot
July 9, 2011
The visionary Marc Ribot, “one of the most individual of guitarists and a master of introverted ironies,” (Village Voice) turns his attention to one of Chaplin’s greatest films. Ribot’s haunting solo guitar score makes this classic contemporary, taking its story of a single father struggling to raise his son during the Depression and making it relevant to the today’s economic and social conditions. Poignant, funny, and mesmerizing, the work is a unique conversation between artistic geniuses of the past and present.
"Mr. Ribot is a deceptively articulate artist who uses inarticulateness as an expressive device." The New York Times
