Kandis Williams's Eurydice

Tuesday Jan 28, 2020 7:30 PM This is a past program

Artist Kandis Williams hosts a screening created from the recording of several performative iterations of her Eurydice project. The screening is followed by a conversation with Williams and musician Alex Zhang Hungtai, exploring aesthetic decisions around loss and trauma, the artist’s role in transforming affect into form, and their work together on various stages of the project.

Part of a county-wide festival of performances, conversations and happenings inspired by LA Opera’s world premiere of Eurydice, a new opera created by composer Matthew Aucoin and librettist Sarah Ruhl. Learn more about the Eurydice Found festival on the LA Opera website.
