Lab PerForum: Neo-Arctic
February 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm EST
Lab PerForum: A Series of Public Discussions and Workshops with Artists from the Kennedy Center’s World Stages.
The Lab PerForum series provides intimate access to leading theater artists from around the world through panels, discussions, and interactive workshops. Through our partnership with the Kennedy Center’s World Stages, The Lab’s signature approach offers rare insight into the artistic approaches and social contexts of work from artists around the world who are using theater to engage the most pressing issues of our time.
About the production:
Making its U.S. premiere, this collaboration between Denmark’s artistic incubator Hotel Pro Forma and the Latvian Radio Choir daringly explores the Anthropocene, a new geological age characterized by the harsh impact of humanity on our vulnerable eco-system. Through a mingling of classical voice, electronica, dramatic staging, and movement, plus a dynamic backdrop of photography from NASA, this visual music performance addresses a broad range of environmental issues from climate change to soil erosion. Twelve unique soundscapes cover twelve different landscapes to tell the story of planet Earth and its future.
