Nightlife Highlights: Ipsa Dixit

December 9. Who says the avant garde is without humor or self-scrutiny? Certainly not composer and vocalist Kate Soper, whose new theatrical chamber music production Ipsa Dixit explores "the intersection of music, language, and meaning [and] blends elements of monodrama, Greek theater, and screwball comedy to skewer the treachery of language and the questionable authenticity of artistic expression." The performance, whose six movements utilize texts by Aristotle, Plato, Freud, Lydia Davis, and other intellectual iconoclasts, incorporates voice, percussion, flute, and violin, has been in development since 2010, and is the culmination of Soper's December EMPAC residency. (Del McCoury and David Grisman drop in December 10; Lapalux lays it down December 16.) 8pm. $18. Troy. (518) 276-3921; Empac.rpi.edu.
