Diana Wege: Earth Requiem and Rebirth

September 9, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Free – $40
Earth Requiem performance

World Premiere Errolyn Wallen

An interdisciplinary performance and installation conceived by artist Diana Wege. It is a response to climate change, pollution, resource depletion, and nuclear capability. The piece immerses the audience in a near-future where the degradation and extinction of nature is symbolized by a choir of languages from throughout the globe and the apparition of a landscape painting catching fire and restored by the reversal of humanity’s destructive ways. Earth Requiem joins multiple disciplines  to warn us of a clear and present danger. Mark Shapiro will conduct original music by Errollyn Wallen and Jeff Beal, performed by a choir accompanied by piano.
