PEM presents the virtual premiere of New Addresses: An Ode to Breath, an original concert-performance short film inspired by the embodiment of breath and the physical space of the museum. Experience three of PEM’s installations in a new light: Anila Quayyum Agha’s All the Flowers Are For Me, Wes Sam-Bruce’s Where the Questions Live: An Exploration of Humans in Nature and Zarah Hussain’s Breath.

The film is a response to Hussain’s exhibition and uses music, dance, and film to emulate the everyday yet profound experience of breathing. Featuring music by composers Christopher Cerrone, Gala Flagello, and Carlos Simon performed by the Boston-based ensemble Hub New Music, with dance and choreography by Laura Kathrein, and filmed by Jamtron Media.
