Moore Theatre | Seattle, Washington
Experience something utterly unique with A Thousand Thoughts: Kronos Quartet, which comes to Moore Theatre on Thursday 23rd April 2020. Written and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Sam Green and Joe Bini, A Thousand Thoughts is a live film documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018, and is an immersive multimedia performance that fuses live music and narration with archival footage and filmed interviews, for a magical experience!
"In A Thousand Thoughts, the music is the story," wrote Slate's Sam Adams of its premiere last year. "The ideas that normally underlay the quartet’s music are moved to the front, existing in counterpoint with the music itself … Watching it was the most joyous experience you could have at Sundance this year …"
