ANTONIO SANCHEZ: BIRDMAN FILM + LIVE SCORE

In February, Duke Performances packed Reynolds Industries Theater for a live score of the whimsical animated film The Triplets of Belleville. This weekend, the presenter gives the same treatment to Birdman, Alejandro González Iñárritu's 2014 Oscar winner about a washed-up actor—played by Michael Keaton, lampooning his Batman background—who's trying to mount a Broadway comeback after decades of being recognized only as a superhero character. Part of the film's brilliance stemmed from its score, written by jazz percussionist Antonio Sanchez, who took home a Grammy for it. His dynamic playing masterfully highlights the tense undercurrents of the backstage drama; his kit sometimes seems like a character in the film, narrating the protagonist's inner strife. Don't be surprised if you end up watching the drummer more than the movie. —Allison Hussey
