Experience the celebrated movie Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) with a live soundtrack from composer and renowned drummer Antonio Sanchez! He performs his GRAMMY® Award-winning score live on The Z stage while the stunning 2015 Oscar® winner for Best Picture unfolds on screen. Michael Keaton plays a washed-up action star trying to reinvent his career in a continuous sequence of events, with Sanchez’s drums supplying the energy and drive that underlines the emotional weight of the story. As one of the most accomplished drummers who performs regularly with a jaw-dropping list of greats, Sanchez is the heartbeat of the film in an absolutely gripping performance.
This performance is linked to The Z’s 2017/2018 ArtsBridge theme of The Immigrant’s Journey, which celebrates New Bedford’s rich cultural history. The slate of programming includes Birdman Live starring Antonio Sanchez, Viva Portugal, Ana Moura, Through a Portagee Gate and more.
“Audiences, meet Antonio Sanchez, the other star of Birdman.”
