WNYC’s John Schaefer invites Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer Ted Hearne and poet Saul Williams for the livestream debut of a special performed-at-home version of Place, the pair’s “explosive, restless, fragment-laden score” (The New York Times) that explores the impacts of gentrification. The performance will be followed by a live discussion about displacement, gentrification and the housing crisis in the time of COVID-19, and will also feature Grammy-nominated flutist, composer, and vocalist Nathalie Joachim.
