As part of the performance, de Picciotto collaborated with her husband, Alexander Hacke of Einsturzende Neubauten, in writing music to accompany the film. For the Denver screening, the duo will be joined by avant-garde trumpet player Steve Forker and David Eugene Edwards, of 16 Horsepower and Wovenhand fame. "The silent movie does not have a soundtrack, so you only have visuals," de Picciotto says. "If you add music to it, live music and live spoken word, it will be different every time. Because of that, it will create a magic story of its own every single time you perform it."
Catch this unique performance, one night only, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Denver FilmCenter, 2150 East Colfax Avenue; tickets are $20. For more information, visit www.danielledepicciotto.com or www.denverfilm.org.
