Patient(ce) is an evening-length, interdisciplinary work is inspired by father daughter conversations between Stefanie Batten Bland and controversial composer and film maker Ed Bland. This creation will examine the structure of jazz with its formal emphasis on the eternal present. Through a collaboration with futuristic jazz ensemble Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber and visual installation by Ms. Batten Bland and Alaric Hahn, PATIENT(CE) will examine the critical relationship that the musical, physical and visual arts have with space and time.
