House of Usher

a multimedia film score by Anna Coogan & TZAR

March 30-31, 2018 at the Cherry Artspace

A timeless re-telling of the Edgar Allen Poe story, “The Fall of the House of Usher” combines the classic 1928 film by Jean Epstein with modern opera, film-noir, and improvisation by musicians Anna Coogan and Tzar. Explores the place where film, theater, music, and storytelling collide. The neo-operatic score was originally written and performed for the Ithaca Fantastik Film Festival in 2015, and returns to the Cherry in 2018 in a new and exciting form. Directed by Samuel Buggeln.
