FUTURE HOST 2/13

Description

FUTURE HOST: A Speech Opera



DATE: Feb 13 Monday & Feb 14 Tuesday, 2017
LOCATION: BankART Studio 1F, Kawabata Hall, BankART, Yokohama

Future Host travels to Yokohama after premiering at Knockdown Center, New York in January 2017.

Future Host is inspired by Stockhausen's Gesang der Jünglinge and the post-socialist experience in China. Written, performed and recorded in Chinese, the performance features a 14-channel sound installation, using cutting-edge spatialization techniques to orchestrate fragmented language and disparate voices into a polyphonic soundscape.

Absent of actors, this around-the-clock performance installation forms an acoustic monument centered on a void, activating an ambulatory experience whereby the audience freely inhabits the space of Kawabata Hall.

Audience with 1-day Admission receive same-day, multiple entries into the performance installation as well as an English-language program with text in Japanese and Chinese.

Performance Playtimes are as follows (subject to change)
