Composed by Bryce Dessner
Libretto by Korde Arrington Tuttle featuring the work of Essex Hemphill & Patti Smith
Visual production conceived by Daniel Fish
Directed by Daniel Fish & Ashley Tata
Roomful of Teeth
Music Direction & conducting by Brad Wells

Situated somewhere between erotic heat and cool classicism, the work of controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe obliterates the high-low divide, exploding classical conceptions of beauty. Fueled by a lifelong fascination with the artist’s transgressive, sacred-profane vision, composer Bryce Dessner (The National), in collaboration with Korde Arrington Tuttle, video designer Simon Harding, and directors Daniel Fish and Ashley Tata, invites us to experience these arresting images anew. Featuring photographic projections and a new score by Dessner—performed by the daring eight-person vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth and a chamber orchestra—Triptych (Eyes of One on Another) examines how we look and are looked at, bringing us face to face with our innermost desires, fears, and humanity.
