Flight Over Wasteland
Liliya Lifanova in collaboration with Hiroya Miura Knockdown Center April 12 – 16, 2017 Open Rehearsals: April 12 – 14, 2-6pm Performance: April 15, 3pm
Flight Over Wasteland is a project by visual artist Liliya Lifanova in collaboration with composer Hiroya Miura, and choreographer Davy Bisaro. This collaborative team reimagines T.S. Eliot’s modern epic poem The Waste Land in a series of evocative tableaux vivants, choreographed gestures, actions, sculptural objects, and sound.
Eliot’s poem, The Waste Land attracted Lifanova for its ability to reflect the complexity, brokenness, and collaged nature of the present moment, with its multiple voices, points of view, quotes and histories. Revisiting this monumental text, Flight Over Wasteland offers an immersive experience to contemplate this literary and cultural inheritance anew.
