-Austin Camerata presents one of the most powerful works of the 20th century: Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet no. 8 in collaboration with original choreography for five dancers.

Reimagined with innovative choreography, musicians and dancers come together to augment the music's gripping narrative.
