Kurbasy_MeanyNovember 16, 8:00 PM | Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

From the Carpathian mountains, Kurbasy traces contemporary connections to an archaic past. Making their first-ever U.S. tour, the actress-singers are a beautifully blended vocal trio intermixing multi-faceted music, folk-influenced costumes and phantasmagoric images to explore Ukraine’s rich traditions. With tight vocal harmonies and resonant lyrics, Kurbasy’s sonic-theatrical performances conjure the natural world, beliefs and rituals.

$10 tickets for UW students when you show your Husky ID in advance at the ArtsUW Ticket Office or on the night of the show at the Box Office at Meany Hall| More Info
