STG Presents WORDLESS! Art Spiegelman and Phillip Johnston at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
Twenty-two years after the release of his Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel MAUS, Art Spiegelman presents Wordless!, an innovative hybrid of slides, talk and musical performance created with acclaimed jazz composer Phillip Johnston. Johnston’s original scores, performed with his sextet, accompany the cartoonist’s personal tour of the first legitimate “graphic novels”— silent picture stories made by early 20th-century masters like Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward and Milt Gross—and their influence on him.
