Last Audience from Yanira Castro I a canary torsi

A person in a brown hoodie and blue jeans turned with their back towards us, with back hunched over crossed knees. Simon Courchel

From Yanira Castro I a canary torsi, Last Audience is a work embodied by its audience–a live laboratory for the communal work of conjuring. Comprised of a set of unique scores written for each performance, the piece grapples with agency and manipulation, negotiating the individual and the collective inside a theatrical context. Drawing on language and themes from requiems and Greek classical tragedy on judgement and democratic formation, Last Audience moves inside the unstable space between the perfunctory and the transformative.

6:30 PM COMMUNE: A free, public meal before each performance hosted by special guests invited to contribute a dish, poem, story, dance.

Free with RSVP
