Meredith Monk is a composer, singer, director, choreographer and creator of new opera, music theater, films and installations. She has been proclaimed as a 'magician of the voice' and 'one of America's coolest composers.' During a career that spans more than 45 years, Monk has been hailed by audiences and critics as a major creative force in the performing arts.
Inner Voice celebrates Monk's life and work, and illuminates the role that Buddhism has had in her artistic practice. Using a wealth of resource material including personal archives, film clips of performances, and interviews with her collaborators, as well as conversations with the multi-talented artist herself, director Babeth M. Vanloo articulates Monk's extraordinary drive to live for, and through, artistic expression. Tracing the path of her unceasing creativity up to and including her 2008 music theater piece, Songs of Ascension, the documentary elucidates the mystical nature of artistic creation and the life-affirming energy of an authentic inner voice.
