Antonio Sánchez (USA/Mexico)
Birdman with a live score by one of the world's best drummers.
It’s a night at the movies like no other. This is a very special event with Antonio Sánchez, one of the world’s greatest living drummers, accompanying the Oscar-winning film Birdman live. It’s peak virtuosity: an epic score for an epic film, performed in the flesh by its master creator. Sánchez’ tour-de-force performance, in all its percussive glory, has received applause across the globe: from L.A. to Sydney, São Paulo to Mexico City.
Most of Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film unfolds as if in one continuous cinematic shot, and Sánchez’ score is the perfect complement— it rolls along to the action with a nervous energy, stretching out like a drumroll for the world’s longest high-wire act. The screen belongs to stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, but Sánchez owns the stage, rolling out his beats in perfect time to the movie. Broadway meets Hollywood, as cinema, theatre and music are joined in spectacular rhythm.
[A] groundbreaking soundtrack powered almost entirely by raw, naked drum solos.
