The Euphoria of Walt Whitman-A dense and holistic visual landscape made from projected video, animation, and shadow theater is paired with live operatic voice and cello in The Euphoria of Walt Whitman, a handcrafted, multisensory production exploring Whitman’s obsession with the traveling operas of the Wild West in the Gold Rush era.
Hallucinations-Hallucinations is an experimental film featuring puppets, objects, and cut paper animating a live performance of Mirabai Songs (1982) by new music composer John Harbison. Inspired by the legendary sixteenth-century poet and street performer from Rajasthan, India, the piece evokes Mirabai’s escape from death and devotion to Krishna expressed in dance, poetry, and song.
