8:00 PM Music: Roland Auzet French composer, percussionist, and theater director Roland Auzet defines himself as a stage writer. An artist and performer with many interests and talents, Auzet received the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres from the French Ministry in 2007 for his remarkable body of work in contemporary music, circus, dance, opera, and theater. Auzet has collaborated with leading artists from around the world including Pierre Boulez, Iannis Xenakis, Angelin Preljocaj, and Merce Cunningham. Auzet's new work starts with a car on an empty stage, but he quickly fills the room with so much more. Employing gesture, movement, and drumming he answers fundamental questions about human nature, solitude, power, knowledge, strength, virtuosity, and doubt.
