FUTURE HOST 2/13
FUTURE HOST: A Speech Opera
DATE: Feb 13 Monday & Feb 14 Tuesday, 2017
LOCATION: BankART Studio 1F, Kawabata Hall, BankART, Yokohama
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)
16:00 | 17:00 | 18:00 | 19:00 | 20:00
