    This cello opera for Maya Beiser and the acclaimed vocalist Helga Davis began as a unique collaboration between Beiser (termed "the cello goddess" by The New Yorker) and theatre director Robert Woodruff (called "the country's most adventurous director" by Time Out New York) . A triptych of daring compositions by Eve Beglarian, Michael Gordon and Missy Mazzoli, Elsewhere is an imaginative and psychological retelling of the biblical story of Lot's wife. The piece, performed here as a work-in-progress includes a sweeping assemblage of video by Peter Nigrini, choreography by Karole Armitage, environments by Riccardo Hernandez, and amplified, distorted and acoustic cello in tandem with spoken and sung texts by Erin Cressida Wilson and Henri Michaux.
