Composer and musician Francisco Pais has assembled musicians from around the world to debut an original contemporary jazz suite inspired by Doris. The suite is imagined as a soundtrack of Doris’ life and each movement tells a story. Pais was inspired by meaningful moments in Doris Duke’s life and by her wide ranging interests in the arts, surfing, and music. In the words of the composer: "In music it’s important to be daring, to allow yourself to experiment even if it means you fail. Doris Duke was a daring woman, a strong woman; she was always looking for new ways forward." The I Dare You suite takes its title from a quote by saxophone legend Wayne Shorter, who said, “To me jazz means: I dare you.” The intimate performance will take place in the Great Hall at Rough Point (pictured above) and will be followed by a talk-back with the composer.
