Watch the Trailer
In a highly original experiment in self-documentary, filmmaker, lifelong musician and ODC Theater Resident Artist Paul Festa takes a lesson on the Tchaikovsky violin concerto from a series of artists, none of whom are violinists. Each lesson sparks a spirited dialogue about music, the artist's path, the teacher-student relationship and the role of the muse. At times rollicking comedy, at others stirring drama, and always deeply human, the world-premiere of Tie It Into My Hand will energize the artist within all of us.

This world premiere is part of Moving Pictures Month at the ODC Theater which includes screenings of and Dances Made to Order.

Theater and film star Alan Cumming
