Back in 2013, Joan of Arc teamed with experimental theater ensemble Every house has a door for the performance piece Testimonium, which eventually resulted in Joan of Arc recording the music they wrote for it as Testimonium Songs. Now they’re set to give Testimonium its New York premiere from May 26-28 at the Knockdown Center in Queens. From the show description:

Testimonium, previously titled Testimony 2.2, presents recitation, movement, and music, composed in response to Testimony: The United States 1885 – 1915, the unfinished masterwork by the American Objectivist poet Charles Reznikoff. Bryan Saner recites a reimagined text, unfolding the original with biographical and philosophical material. Stephen Fiehn performs a series of near-silent movement sequences, activating objects on the installation-like stage. Joan of Arc perform live an original 6-song cycle. Three alternating modes of performance form a complex weave at three radically different volume levels.

Tickets for all three nights are on sale now. Listen to Testimonium Songs below.

Joan of Arc’s only other upcoming date that we’re aware of is their 20th anniversary show in Chicago this June.
