Dungen at Garfield Park Conservatory
The band will be performing the original score they were asked to create to Lotte Reiniger’s 1926 touchstone The Adventures of Prince Achmed, understood to be the oldest surviving full-length animated feature film. Inspired by the nature of the work and the characters portrayed within, the members of Dungen collaborated on themes to represent their take on the film’s narrative, and immersed themselves in the groundbreaking visual language of this landmark film. The result is Häxan, the group’s first instrumental album.
This is sure to be a memorable night—grab your tickets here.
