In their brilliant collaboration, Lyra, The Living Earth Show and Post:ballet embody the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, viscerally studying questions of empathy, technology, and our relationship to the natural world. Lyra explores our shared human experiences of love, loss, and learning to let go. This performance combines a concert, dance, contemporary classical music, and visual design for an introspective exploration of the modern-day human condition.
The music of composer Samuel Adams, the movement of choreographer Vanessa Thiessen, and the cinematography of Benjamin Tarquin come together in the perfect balance of entrancing rhythms and captivating movement. Created both in quarantine and in person, Lyra seamlessly weaves together digital and physical realms, with The Living Earth Show gracing the stage with their refreshing sonic explorations.
Lyra features film directed by Robin Dekkers, Artistic Director Post:ballet, and live dance artist, Babatunji Johnson.
