Kaddish is legendary music producer Hal Willner’s live staging of the Allen Ginsberg poem of the same name. The piece is directed by Chloe Webb and features Willner and Webb performing the poem accompanied by a live score written and conducted by Grammy Award-winning jazz guitarist Bill Frisell, along with a visual design that features projected paintings by “Gonzo” artist Ralph Steadman incorporated into a film by Chloe Webb. An epic lament to Ginsberg’s loss of his mother and a reflection on his own estrangement from Judaism, Kaddish is a cornerstone of the Beat Generation and has been the inspiration to many artists past and present. This musical and visual journey into Kaddish showcases the unique conceptual energy of Hal Willner, whose off-kilter genius for creating multi artist concept albums and live shows over the last 30 years has made him among the most original voices in music of his generation.
