Samuel Beckett's Quad I and Quad II

Thu, January 23, 2020, 7:30 PM and Sat, Jan 25, 2020, 2 and 4 PM

Samuel Beckett’s rarely performed Quad I and Quad II, directed by Michael Hackett, represents the playwright’s distillation of the human journey through an interplay of sound, light, and movement. The movements of its four hooded figures embody a progression toward the separation of the conscious and unconscious mind.

Catch the performance on one of three dates:
Thursday, January 23, 2020, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 2 p.m. 
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 4 p.m.

Copresented with the UCLA Department of Theater

The performance has a runtime of 25 minutes.

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.
