Timur and the Dime Museumís COLLAPSE

Timur and the Dime Museumís COLLAPSE
LOS ANGELES  •  REDCAT  •  Ongoing

REDCAT, CalArtsí downtown center for contemporary arts, presents the world premiere of Timur and the Dime Museumís COLLAPSE, a post-ecological requiem.

Composed by Daniel Corral and produced by Beth Morrison Projects, COLLAPSE is a show with interactive visuals and satiric songs about the environmental catastrophes caused by humans.

Envisioned as a theatrical requiem, different stories are refracted through the eclectic sound of the four-member band through accordion/keys, bass, guitar and drums. The voice of the Kazakh-American tenor TIMUR, playing the role of Moloch, a God of human sacrifice, brings dramatic figuration to laments of environmental degradation past, present and future. Composer Corralís approach to COLLAPSE focuses on reimagining the traditional requiem form into a band-driven song cycle for the 21st century.

Live-mixed projections by the video artist Jesse Gilbert (World Technology Network fellow), and costumes of the LA fashion designer Victor Wilde of the Bohemian Society (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2014),further create a portrait of the human-made impact on the planet.

Following the world-premiere at REDCAT, Collapse will travel to Miami Light Project and Operadagen Festival in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
