About This Program

Approximate length 2:00

The stingingly true poetry of Dorothea Lasky has inspired Los Angeles-based composer Ted Hearne’s new theatrical song cycle. This intimate 12-song suite for chamber ensemble with Hearne on vocals engages audiences in a complicated, loving meditation on the personal and domestic, while savoring the depths of the wildness within. A real-time installation by conceptual artist Rachel Perry, with production design and lighting by Peabody Southwell, turns the music and poetry into a living, fruiting organism.
